A Florida man suspected in the death of a man whose body was found in a ditch in northeastern Montana has made an initial court appearance in North Dakota.
Forty-six-year-old Charles Bowman Bowen appeared Monday before District Judge David Nelson in Williston. The judge continued the extradition proceedings without making a decision.
Bowen was arrested Friday in the death of 49-year-old Brian Doyle, also of Florida.
The hometowns of the victim and the suspect were not clear.
Doyle's body was found Jan. 20 near Bainville, in a ditch along U.S. Highway 2.
Investigators say he was run over by a motor vehicle but are not releasing further details.
Montana authorities are seeking a $100,000 bond on Bowen.
