KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- A suspect in the death of an internationally known dog show handler and judge is being held on $1 million bond after making his first court appearance in the case.

Fifty-year-old Darrell L. Broxton is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 69-year-old Peter Belmont Jr.

Belmont was found dead at his Kansas City, Kan., home last December.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/11AjeLJ ) Belmont was known internationally on the dog show circuit for his breeding of Afghan hounds under the kennel name of Elmo. He also taught art for years in Kansas City, Kan., schools.

Broxton, who was paroled in May after serving time on burglary charges, was arrested Friday. He was not required to plea during Monday's court appearance.
