    A 32-year-old Cranston, Rhode Island, man has been ordered held after being charged with murder in the stabbing death of his former girlfriend's current boyfriend. 

    Fredi Lopez was arraigned in District Court on Monday. No plea was entered and a judge set a bail hearing for later this month. 

    Police say Lopez went to his ex-girlfriend's apartment early Saturday and confronted 33-year-old Andres Arguijo-Acosta. At some point, investigators say Lopez grabbed a knife and stabbed Arguijo-Acosta, who later died at a hospital. 

    Lopez was arrested at his Cranston home. His lawyer, Joseph Voccola, calls the case tragic. He says his client's family has called the allegations completely out of character for Lopez.
