A 28 year old New Bedford man appeared in District Court Monday to answer a murder charge.  Luis Torres was returned to Bristol County last week from New Hampshire, where he was picked up as a fugitive from justice.  He’s charged in the Sept. 18 stabbing of 25 year old Robert Sylvia of  New Bedford.   Police say Sylvia was stabbed in the chest during a fight in a Tinkham St. apartment.

He died October 2 at Rhode Island Hospital.  At his arraignment, Torres was ordered held without bail.  A not guilty plea was entered on his behalf, and the case was continued to Nov. 20 for a probable cause hearing.
