    A Massachusetts man accused of kidnapping and trying to kill a girl last month faced a judge Tuesday.

    Joshua Hubert, 35, of Worcester was ordered to be held on $1 million bail during his arraignment on a new charge of attempted murder.

    Authorities say Hubert kidnapped the 7-year-old girl from her grandparents' home in Worcester on Aug. 27 while as a guest at the cookout and the girl was sleeping in a chair.

    Hubert allegedly then put the child in a car, choked her and then threw her into Lake Quinsigamond.
