MEDFORD - Accused Medford drug store killer David Laffer is under suicide watch at the Suffolk County Jail this morning.

A judge ordered Laffer held without bail yesterday.

This morning, jail officials say Laffer is in special housing under constant supervision.

Police say two fingerprints found at the scene of the killings link Laffer to the crime. They also say the victims never had a chance.

Cops say two of the victims were ambushed when they walked into Haven Drugs.

Yesterday during Laffer's arraignment, victim Jaime Taccetta's brother Daniel was ejected from the courtroom when he yelled "you are a coward," at the suspected killer.
