PEABODY — A Peabody man was ordered held without bail Tuesday on murder charges in connection with the deaths of a couple whose bodies were in a home on Farm Avenue over the weekend.

Michael Hebb, 45, didn’t speak during his brief arraignment in Peabody District Court, where not-guilty pleas were entered on his behalf. Defense attorney Raymond Buso agreed to have Hebb held without bail.

Authorities said they continue to look for a second suspect believed to be involved in the killings of Jennifer O’Connor, 40, and her boyfriend, Michael Greenlaw, 37. The couple was found slain Saturday night.

No details about the crimes were detailed in court. Judge James Barretto granted a prosecution request to seal Hebb’s arrest affidavit.
