NEW YORK (AP) — A judge has ordered a New York City police officer accused of plotting to torture women and cook and eat their body parts detained without bail after his initial appearance in federal court.

Magistrate Judge Henry Pitman said at the Thursday hearing that the allegations against 28-year-old Gilberto Valle were "profoundly disturbing."

The six-year officer sat quietly throughout the hearing, answering "yes, Your Honor" to the judge.

Public defender Julia Gatto had asked for bail, saying the alleged plot was "fantasy in a sexual world." She said it was a deviant fantasy and there was no crossing of the line from fantasy to reality.

A prosecutor disagreed, saying the Valle had to be arrested because he was too close to carrying out the plot.
