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 Worcester Telegram & Gazette reported that he was held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing scheduled for Monday. Prosecutors said Fuentes, 48, 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. A lawyer for Fuentes said he ''absolutely denies the allegations.'' (AP)
