Man held without bail on parental kidnapping charge

BOSTON (AP) - The man accused of snatching his 7-year-old daughter in Boston and taking her to Maryland has been arraigned in Boston, on charges including felony parental kidnapping.

Clark Rockefeller has been ordered held without bail.

He didn't speak at the hearing, though he was heard muttering "that's not me" when a prosecutor mentioned an alias that was attributed to him.

His attorney says Rockefeller did not kidnap the girl. He told reporters, "Kidnapping doesn't apply, it was his own kid."

He also denies that Rockefeller has any links to a slaying in California. The Boston Globe said his fingerprints may be linked to an investigation of a homicide.

The lawyer says Clark Rockefeller is his client's real name. Prosecutors say he has at least a-half dozen aliases and that he's told authorities he doesn't remember his history.

Members of the Rockefeller family of Standard Oil fame say there's no indication he's related to them.
