A mugshot of Steward Weldon who was arrested Sunday after a police pursuit. The Springfield, Mass. home, where where three dead bodies have been discovered, is the last known residence of Weldon, according to ABC-affiliate WCVB.
Following a short chase, police apprehended Weldon. They found a woman with him in the car who told officers that Weldon had held her captive for a month, sexually assaulted her and beaten her, according to WGGB-TV in Springfield.
Weldon was arrested that night. He pleaded not guilty to kidnapping and other charges last week, WGGB-TV reported.
The woman was taken to a hospital where she is still recovering, Gulluni said.
On Monday, Weldon was arraigned on additional charges of kidnapping, assault and rape, related to a different victim, Gulluni said at the news conference.
Weldon was held on $2 million bail combined for both cases, Gulluni said.
No one has been charged in connection to the bodies found at the Springfield property, nor has Weldon been linked to them.
Weldon's mother bought the property two years ago and is listed as the owner, according to public records.
