MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- A 43-year-old Manhattan man has made his first court appearance on a charge of first-degree murder in the weekend shooting death of a Fort Riley soldier.

KMAN-AM reports (http://bit.ly/ZGD0cB ) a Riley County judge on Wednesday found Matthew Dennis Wilson eligible for a court-appointed lawyer. Wilson appeared via webcam from the county jail and will have his next court hearing April 22.

Riley County police say the soldier, 22-year-old Michael T. Lowery, was killed early Sunday at a Manhattan apartment complex. Another man and two women, both 23 years old, were also shot and taken to hospitals in the area.

Wilson remains jailed on $2 million bond. The charges against him also include three counts of attempted first-degree murder and aggravated burglary.
