BOLIVIA, NC (WECT) - A man who was wanted on first degree murder charges in connection to a Leland homicide, made his first court appearance this morning.
James "Jimmy" Ketchum appeared before a judge in Brunswick County Thursday morning and requested a state appointed attorney.
Ketchum is charged with the murder of Jason Rowland Anderson of Leland Sunday night.
He had been on the run since Monday but was spotted in Wilmington late Wednesday morning. After a brief chase, police apprehended Ketchum and another man, Calron Williams. Williams is facing unrelated charges.
Ketchum's next appearance will be a probable cause hearing on March 10 to determine if the state has enough evidence to try him for first degree murder.
Ketchum is currently being held without bond.
