A Boston man is expected to appear at Charlestown Municipal Court Wednesday in connection with the alleged kidnapping of a 23-year-old woman.
Prior to the planned closure, defense lawyers requested that suspect Victor Pena undergo a mental health evaluation, reported ABC Boston-associated WCVB.
Pena, 38, was accused of kidnapping after the authorities said he was found on his Charlestown apartment on Tuesday with Olivia Ambrose, who disappeared on Saturday night.
