Edwin Alemany was ordered held without bail at his arraignment Wednesday in Suffolk Superior Court on charges including first-degree murder in connection with the July stabbing death of Amy Lord.

The 29-year-old Alemany was indicted last month in the death of the Wilbraham native who was living in South Boston.

Alemany is also charged in connection with three non-fatal attacks on women in their early 20s, two the same week Lord was killed.

Alemany has been held in a state psychiatric facility since pleading not guilty in district court.

Alemany's lawyer did not speak at Wednesday's court hearing but previously said his client has a history of untreated mental illness.
