LEALMAN, Fla. (AP) — A former school principal accused of killing two people during a rampage has been denied bond.

Anthony Giancola made his first court appearance Saturday, when a judge refused to grant him bond. He is being held in the Pinellas County jail.

The 45-year-old has been charged with first-degree murder and other counts. Authorities say he went on a drug- or alcohol-induced rampage on Friday, killing two people.

Officials say Giancola stabbed several people, crashed his car into a crowded porch and then attacked a couple at a motel.

Giancola had been a principal at a Tampa Bay-area middle school when he was arrested on crack cocaine charges in 2007.
