SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Ukranian man who faces federal charges for disrupting a flight from Boston to Salt Lake City will remain in jail for his trial.

A federal magistrate denied Anatoliy N. Baranovich's request on Monday to return home to Oregon. His trial is scheduled to begin Jan. 7.

The incident occurred in mid-October on a Delta Air Lines flight. Authorities say Baranovich, 46, woke up as the plane was descending, began yelling in Russian and damaged the fuselage trying to open the rear door.

Authorities say he offered federal agents $6,534 to let him go. His luggage was found to contain 19 passports. He pleaded not guilty in November.
