A Sullivan County murder suspect appeared briefly in court Tuesday morning.

A judge appointed an attorney to represent Johnny Royston, Jr. Royston was on the run for several days leading to a large scale manhunt that crossed into Virginia.

Royston is accused of shooting Rowdy Yates in the head July 7 at a camper on Eaton Private Drive.

Royston remains jailed and is due back in court in August.
