A judge is ordering the man accused of killing teenager Tracy Gilpin in 1986 to remain in custody without bail.
Michael Hand was extradited from North Carolina to Massachusetts this week to face a charge of first degree murder.
Hand is accused of killing the Kingston teenager, who was the sister of current State Police Colonel Kerry Gilpin, and dumping her body in the woods of Plymouth.
Prosecutors say Hand placed himself at the scene of the killing in an interview, although he accuses another man of committing the murder.
DA Timothy Cruz telling reporters after the arraignment that he is confident in the evidence that connects Hand to the crime.
