MIRAMAR, Fla. (MyFoxBoston.com) -- A 41-year-old man wanted in connection to the murder of Odin Lloyd was held without bond Saturday.

Ernest George Wallace was denied bond and held at Broward County Main Jail following his initial appearance in a Fla. court, reports the Sun-Sentinel.

Wallace's attorney has said his client plans to waive rendition proceedings and return to Mass. for arraignment.

Investigators said that Wallace turned himself in to law enforcement officials in Miramar, Fla. Friday afternoon.

The 41-year-old Wallace is accused of being an accessory after the fact in the murder of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, of Dorchester.

Police had released an updated wanted poster for Wallace Friday. They listed Connecticut, Massachusetts, Georgia and Florida as places that should pay special attention as to where Wallace might be. He was also listed as "armed and dangerous."

Mass. State Police's Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section was involved in the arrest.

Police had also recovered the Chrysler 300 Wallace was believed to have been driving.

FOX 25 spoke to the woman who called 911 after finding the Chrysler 300 parked in her apartment complex in Bristol, Conn. She said it had been parked in the few different spots in the lot since last week and it received two tow notices during that time. The woman said she called police when she and her husband noticed the plates on the car matched the ones she had seen on the news.

The car was then towed to the Bristol Police Department. Bristol police would not say where the car was moved from there, only saying Mass. officials are handling the investigation.

Lloyd was killed on June 17 in North Attleboro. Shortly after his body was discovered, investigators began looking for the Chrysler.

Former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been held without bail after being charged with murder in Lloyd's death.

The complex where the Chrysler 300 was found is about one mile away from the home of Hernandez's uncle. According to court paperwork, another man arrested in connection to the murder was living at the home. Carlos Ortiz was arrested in Bristol, Conn. as a fugitive from justice Wednesday for illegally possessing a firearm in North Attleboro on the morning of Lloyd's death.

After Ortiz's arraignment Friday, Bristol County District Attorney Sam Sutter said he believes all three men who were in the car at the time of Lloyd's murder are in custody.
