An Atlanta man wanted in the fatal stabbing of a local grocer appeared in court Tuesday and was denied bond, police said.
FBI agents arrested Oderrick Boone, 26, on July 5 in Syracuse, N.Y. -- four days after 62-year-old Baik Sung was found dead in his southwest Atlanta supermarket. Boone, charged with Sung's murder, is being held at Fulton County Jail.
According to Fulton County Sheriff's spokeswoman Tracy Flanagan, Boone made a brief appearance Tuesday in Fulton County Court, where he was denied bond and three charges were added to the case. Boone is now charged with homicide murder, robbery with a weapon, felony murder, aggravated assault with the intent to rob, and possession of a knife in the commission of a felony.
Sung was stabbed in the torso repeatedly during an apparent robbery attempt. Security cameras captured a man matching Boone's description milling around the store counter, police said. An anonymous tip led authorities to Syracuse.
Boone's next hearing is scheduled for July 27 at 9 a.m.
