He appeared in an apparently torpid state, seated on a bench with his head tilted to the right, and answered the judge’s questions almost inaudibly.

In addition to denying bail, Ankeny asked prosecutors to share with defense lawyers the details of the arrest warrant against Aldrich, on which the summary secrecy still weighs.

The charges against the detainee are expected to be formally presented at the next hearing, set for December 6.

The federal prosecutor Michael Allen indicated after the session on Wednesday that the defendant is expected to appear in person before the court in the next session.

Preliminary charges against Aldrich include five for first-degree murder and five for hate crime, US media reported.
