PHOENIX - A Mesa man indicted in the killings of a Paradise Valley couple and another homicide last month refused to appear in court Tuesday for his arraignment.
Maricopa County Superior Court Commissioner Brian Rees ordered 31-year-old Michael Crane to appear Feb. 27 and be transported "by any reasonable means necessary" for his arraignment.
Crane is facing several charges, including-first degree murder and arson, for the deaths of Lawrence and Glenna Shapiro.
Crane is also facing murder charges for the death of cigar shop owner Bruce Gaudet.
Two others charged in the Shapiro and Gaudet cases appeared for their arraignments Tuesday.
Maricopa County Superior Court says 27-year-old Brittnay Beinhauer and 29-year-old Kelly Steward pleaded not guilty to theft, trafficking in stolen property and hindering prosecution.
