Winner of ‘Latin American Idol’ arrested

A judge in the Dominican Republic says the winner of a TV talent show can be held in jail for up to a year while authorities investigate her alleged involvement in drug smuggling. Martha Heredia is a Dominican singer who was the 2009 winner of the TV talent show ‘‘Latin American Idol.’’ The 22-year-old was arrested at a Dominican airport on Wednesday as she was about to board a flight to New York. Police allege she had 2.9 pounds of heroin stuffed in the heels of three pairs of platform shoes. No charges have been filed, but the Dominican legal system allows for lengthy preventive detention.
