The woman accused of committing Charlottesville's first murder in more than a year made her first appearance in court Wednesday morning. Forty-seven-year-old Wanda Turner appeared in court via video conference for a bond hearing.

She is now charged with second-degree murder in the death of 51-year-old Robert "Eddie" Snead.  Snead was found dead Monday morning by a co-worker. Police say he was the victim of a "violent crime."

After his death, police say Turner took a bus to Norfolk to visit her sister. Police there arrested her Monday night. 

The judge deferred bond for Turner and her next hearing is scheduled for May 17.  She will have a public defender.
