The Colorado Springs Gazette reports 72-year-old James Neal, of Monument, nodded at his crying relatives as he was led into court for a brief appearance Thursday. A judge scheduled a Feb. 28 hearing, where Neal could say if he will fight extradition to California to face a murder charge.
Neal was arrested in Colorado Springs on Tuesday for investigation of killing 11-year-old Linda O'Keefe in Newport Beach, Calif.
