BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The man accused in the kidnapping and death of Jassy Correia appeared in South Boston Federal Court Tuesday.

Louis Coleman, 32, was escorted into the courtroom in shackles, wearing an orange jumpsuit. WBZ NewsRadio's Karyn Regal reported he looked almost bemused during his appearance.

Coleman told the judge he understood the charge of kidnapping resulting in death, as well as the possible consequences—life in prison or the death penalty.

Prosecutors say Coleman kidnapped Correia, a young Boston mother, from the Venu nightclub in Boston on February 28. They say he took Correia to his apartment, where she died.

Coleman was arrested in Delaware, where he allegedly told police "the girl is in the trunk."

Correia's family was present for Coleman's arraignment.
