DENVER — An Englewood man who was arrested on producing child pornography and traveling with intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor was ordered by a judge to be held in federal custody without bond Tuesday.

Mervin Edy Wolf, 61, appeared in a U.S. District Court in Denver Tuesday morning for a detention and preliminary hearing, according to a release from the Colorado District Attorney’s office.

Upon completion of the detention hearing, U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael E. Hegarty waived Wolf’s right to a preliminary hearing and said there was probable cause that Wolf committed the two crimes he was accused of in the Criminal Compliant.

Wolf allegedly traveled with the intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a child under the age of 12 and produced child pornography, said Colorado District Attorney John F. Walsh.

The defendant faces up to a $250,000 fine for each of the two counts as well as 45 years to life in prison, said the release.

FBI and local law enforcement said they will continue to investigate the case to determine if there are other victims.
