COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- A man accused of killing a former University of Missouri student 33 years ago has been arraigned on a charge of second-degree murder.
Johnny Wright, 65, of Lawrenceville, Ga., appeared Friday by video from the Boone County Jail. A preliminary hearing was set for Nov. 6.
He is accused in the death of 23-year-old Rebecca Doisy, who disappeared in August 1976.
The 23-year-old woman was a poet and waitress at a popular Columbia diner before she disappeared in August 1976. Her body has never been found.
Wright was detained in suburban Atlanta after seeking a criminal background check for a job application. The check revealed a warrant in the Doisy case issued in 1985.
Wright was transferred this week to the Boone County Jail.
Bond has been set at $100,000.
