Lawyers for a Gaithersburg man detained in Aruba in the presumed death of his travel companion appeared due back in court today to ask a judge to free their Giordano - a request the court rejected.

Giordano is suspected in the disappearance of Gardner, a Frederick resident who disappeared in early August while traveling together on the Caribbean island.

Authorities have yet to find her. Giordano claims Gardner was swept away by the current while snorkeling. A judge had previously ordered Giordano detained for 60 days, an order which was due to expire soon.
