Ex-wrestler denied bail

A judge denied bail Friday morning to the ex-professional wrestler accused of stabbing his girlfriend to death and leading police on a chase before he was captured.

Brian McGhee, 29, known by his wrestling persona "DT Porter," stood silently in a red jail uniform and shackles during the brief first appearance hearing, where Judge Walter Heinrich detailed the case against him.

A public defender requested bail for McGhee, who is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 25-year-old Bianca McGaughey.

Heinrich promptly denied the request.

Hillsborough sheriff's deputies say McGhee, who also went by the name "the Future," attacked McGaughey about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday outside her Egypt Lake-area apartment, stabbing her multiple times in the stomach. She died at the scene.
