Former Royals, Mets Pitcher Ambiorix Burgos Charged With Attempted Murder
Judge Freddy Frias ordered Burgos on Saturday to remain in jail for three months while prosecutors prepare the case.
The 26-year-old is suspected of kidnapping Dilenia Reynoso on Thursday from a prosecutor's home where she was hiding after allegedly receiving death threats from him.
In 2008, authorities dropped charges against Burgos, who was accused in a fatal hit-and-run involving two women.
Last year, a New York jury found Burgos guilty of assaulting his girlfriend in a hotel near Shea Stadium. He was sentenced to nine months in jail.
