Twenty-seven-year-old Carlos Ortiz appeared Friday in North Attleborough court. He has been ordered held without bail until a July 9 hearing.
Before the arraignment, Ortiz's attorney, John Connors, said he spoke to his client for the first time Friday when he was returned from Connecticut. Ortiz was arrested Wednesday.
