BRIDGEPORT - A man accused of killing his girlfriend, kidnapping their daughter and fleeing the state was arraigned Monday in Bridgeport Superior Court.

Oscar Hernandez, 39, was only in court for five minutes, but it took weeks to get him there. It was Feb. 24 when police say Hernandez killed his girlfriend, 26-year-old Nidia Gonzalez, stabbed her co-worker and kidnapped his 6-year-old daughter, Aylin, triggering an Amber Alert in multiple states. Hernandez was captured 250 miles away in Pennsylvania, where his case was delayed for a month.

According to the newly released arrest warrant, the surviving co-worker told medics that Hernandez "went crazy" and stabbed both women. It's still unclear as to what led to the alleged stabbings. In Pennsylvania, state troopers say they found "both wet and dry blood on Hernandez's clothes," blood stains in his car, the victim's bloody cellphone and her credit card.

Because Hernandez has previously been deported for an assault in Stamford, immigration authorities have now placed a hold on him. That means that even if he is able to meet his $2 million bond, immigration authorities would still detain him.

Aylin is now living with family in Stamford.
