Updated 6 years ago

Daniel Fortune was arraigned Tuesday in Kennebec County Superior Court on charges that include aggravated attempted murder and robbery.

Fortune is accused of entering the home of 48-year-old William Guerrette on May 27 and slashing him and his 10-year-old daughter Nicole. The two spent weeks in the hospital after the attack.

A second suspect, 18-year-old Leo Hylton, has pleaded not guilty to similar charges. Hylton is Fortune’s one-time foster brother who recently roomed with him in Augusta.

Both men are being held in lieu of $1 million bail.
