The man who is charged in the fatal shooting of a Ledyard man in November appeared in court in New London on Wednesday after being extradited from Georgia.

Steward Holeman, 34, previously of New London, was brought back to Connecticut earlier this month to face charges of murder, criminal possession of a firearm and carrying a pistol or revolver without a permit for his alleged role in the shooting death of 27-year-old Malik Nunn on Nov. 2.

Ledyard police detectives traveled to Clayton County, Ga., last week to take custody of Holeman, who was wanted on an active warrant. The U.S. Marshals' Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested Holeman in Jonesboro, Ga., on Jan. 5, charging him as a fugitive from justice, according to the Ledyard Police Department.

Holeman was arraigned in New London Superior Court via video conference on Jan. 21. Judge Edward O’Hanlan set a $3 million bond.

His case was transferred to Part A, where major crimes are heard. He appeared before Judge Hillary B. Strackbein on Wednesday morning and his case was continued to Feb. 17.

Strackbein maintained the $3 million bond and Holeman is being held at the Corrigan-Radgowski Correctional Center.
