WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - A guard at a maximum security state prison who allegedly held a gun to his girlfriend’s head and threatened to kill her has been held without bail.

Not guilty pleas were entered on behalf of Jaime Fuentes, of Worcester, at his arraignment Wednesday on charges including assault with intent to murder.

The Telegram & Gazette (https://bit.ly/17uWjK7 ) reports that he was held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing scheduled for Monday.

Prosecutors say the 48-year-old Fuentes, a guard at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, threatened his live-in girlfriend during an argument Tuesday in which he accused her of being unfaithful. Police seized a gun from the home and another from Fuentes’ vehicle.

A lawyer for Fuentes says he “absolutely denies the allegations” and says he was the victim.
