Spoiler alert: He won’t get bail.

Barnes is charged with abducting Freeland-Gaither from a Germantown street earlier this month. Freeland-Gaither was found alive a week ago in Maryland.

Barnes is also charged with the attempted murder of a teenage girl in Virginia. Authorities say he hit the victim with a shovel, then doused her with bleach and gasoline. She eventually escaped.

He will be tried in the federal Philadelphia kidnapping case before being handed over to the authorities in Virginia.
