 WORCESTER — Robin Calzado was ordered held without bail today after being arraigned in Worcester Superior Court this morning for murder in the 2004 stabbing death of a man outside a Fitchburg barbershop, according to Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr.

Mr. Calzado, 36, was returned to Massachusetts by U.S. Marshals over the weekend after serving a prison sentence in the Dominican Republic. He was living in Leominster prior to allegedly escaping to the Dominican Republic after the death of 32-year-old Frederick Martinez on April 30, 2004.

Mr. Martinez was stabbed on Main Street in Fitchburg, near Cushion and Blossom streets.

Mr. Calzado pleaded not guilty to the murder charge, and Judge Shannon Frison continued the case to Feb. 7.

The case is being investigated by the State Police Detectives assigned to the District Attorney’s Office and Fitchburg Police.

Assistant District Attorneys Michael D. McHugh and Anthony H. Melia are the prosecutors.
