GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Pedro Bravo has been formally charged with first-degree murder in the case of a missing University of Florida student during his first court appearance.

The state argued Saturday that Bravo should be charged with murder because he previously said he beat 18-year-old Christian Aguilar until he was bloody, swollen and barely breathing.

Gainesville Police said they discovered Aguilar's backpack hidden in a suitcase in Bravo's closet and blood stains throughout Bravo's car.

The Miami Herald reports Bravo stared straight-faced into the jail camera during the proceedings. He was denied bond.

Police say Aguilar was last seen Sept. 20 at a Best Buy store with Bravo. Police believe they may have been fighting over a girl.

A massive search for Aguilar continues.
