Man charged in co-worker's slaying will remain jailedPosted: Updated:
(AP) - A man charged in the stabbing death of a co-worker authorities say was slain on her lunch break will remain jailed until his murder trial.
A judge issued the ruling Friday during a detention hearing for Kenneth Saal. The 30-year-old Lindenwold man has pleaded not guilty in the death of 26-year-old Carolyn Byington.
Byington was found dead June 10 in her Plainsboro apartment. Authorities have said she suffered multiple stab wounds and blunt force trauma.

Police went there after her colleagues at a marketing firm in Princeton became concerned when she didn't return to work after lunch.
Saal's attorney, Michael Roberts, said his client, who also faces a weapons charge, maintains his innocence.
Neighbors say they heard faint screams coming from the apartment on the day Byington was killed.
