Bridesmaids keep Mass. limo carjacking a secret

A Boston man has been accused of carjacking a wedding limousine at a church and ordering the bridesmaids to get out — but they kept it a secret until the wedding was over.

Police say Joseph Ghella broke a limo window with a hammer outside Blessed Mother Teresa church Saturday and ordered the driver and several bridesmaids out. The church's pastor says the bridesmaids remained calm and no one inside the church knew about the carjacking until after the ceremony.

Ghella pleaded not guilty Wednesday to breaking-and-entering charges in another case. He was ordered held on $25,000 cash bail following his arrest Tuesday inside an apartment where a break-in was reported.

Police say they've now also charged Ghella with carjacking and larceny of a motor vehicle.

Ghella's attorney hasn't returned a phone message seeking comment.
