The son of Powerhouse Gyms co-founder Norman Dabish has been arraigned in Detroit on first-degree murder and torture charges in the beating death of a female friend.

Prosecutors say in a release that 24-year-old Peter N. Dabish was ordered held Thursday in the Wayne County Jail. A preliminary examination is set for April 20.

He was arrested Wednesday in connection with the slaying of 23-year-old Diana DeMayo of Novi.

Edward DeMayo has said his daughter was helping Dabish move into a downtown apartment when she was attacked March 11.

Dabish's late father co-founded Powerhouse, now called Powerhouse Gyms International, in 1975.
