Brian Rini to be detained pending trial

A federal magistrate ordered on Tuesday that the man accused of claiming to be a missing boy from Illinois be detained pending his trial.

When neighbors found 23-year-old Brian Michael Rini wandering the streets of Newport, Kentucky on Wednesday, he told them he was Timmothy Pitzen, a 14-year-old boy who had been missing for years, according to federal officials.

Authorities will continue to hold Rini in jail because of his criminal record, flight risk, lack of identifiable residence, active warrants and mental health history, U.S. Magistrate Karen Litkovitz said during a court hearing Tuesday.
