Under New York's new bail reforms, Paul Barbaritano walked into court in Albany a free man on Wednesday. After his hearing he was remanded to the Albany County Jail without bail.

The former correctional officer and military veteran was arraigned on second-degree murder for the choking and stabbing death of 29-year-old Nicole Jennings in Albany last July.


Police say Jennings' body was found in his Brevator Street apartment.

Barbaritano was a free man under the initial manslaughter charge.

He was recently indicted for murder and last Friday checked himself out of a voluntary inpatient treatment facility for his mental health.
