TAMPA, Fla. -

A judge denied bond for a former professional wrestler accused of fatally stabbing his longtime girlfriend.

The Tampa Bay Times reports 29-year-old Brian McGhee stood silently in a red jail uniform and shackles during a first appearance hearing on Friday in Tampa.

Judge Walter Heinrich detailed the case against McGhee, known by his wrestling moniker "DT Porter." The judge denied a request for bail.

McGhee is accused of stabbing 25-year-old Bianca McGaughey multiple times outside her apartment on Wednesday.

The judge told McGhee there appears to be "a very strong case" against him. He noted that three witnesses identified McGhee as having attacked the woman and that the former wrestler admitted killing a woman to another witness.

McGhee was arrested after fleeing from police.
