Last Friday, authorities say
Nichols overpowered and killed a female

after escaping from custody for
26-hours.

During today's hearing, Nichols
looked straight ahead and avoided eye
contact with everyone in the room,
including the judge.

The judge had been brought in
from another county, after local

judges recused themselves because they
knew the victims of the shooting.
