ORANJESTAD, Aruba (Associated Press) -- A judge in Aruba has turned down a U.S man's request to be released from jail as a suspect in the presumed death of his travel companion.

Maryland businessman Gary Giordano appealed an order detaining him for 60 days while authorities investigate the disappearance of 35-year-old Robyn Gardner. His lawyers say there's not enough evidence to hold him.

The judge rejected his request Monday. It was his second failed appeal.

Attorney Michael Lopez says the defense will try again at the end of the month when the 60-day order expires. Prosecutors say they will seek to extend the order.

Giordano denies wrongdoing and says Gardner was swept out to sea while snorkeling. Her body has not been found.
