A former Michigan State University basketball star was ordered to remain in jail during his first court appearance on murder and other charges in Detroit.

Defense attorney Andrew Abood asked for a bond, saying Keith Appling had always appeared in court in previous cases. But a magistrate denied bond Thursday, noting the first-degree murder charge.

Appling, 29, said little during the arraignment. Abood entered a not-guilty plea on his behalf.

Appling is accused of killing Clyde Edmonds, 66, on May 22 during a dispute over a gun. His girlfriend, who is accused of driving a getaway car, faces less serious charges.

Appling’s mother and the victim's wife are cousins.

Appling has been in custody since his arrest on May 24. Separately, he is charged with assault in Jackson for an incident on May 2.

The Detroit Pershing prep star played at Michigan State from 2010 to 2014. Appling also played pro basketball overseas and had two brief contracts with the NBA’s Orlando Magic.

"Sad," said Michigan State coach Tom Izzo. "I’m thinking about him. I feel bad about him. It’s a shame what’s happened."

John McAfee claimed Jeffrey Epstein could not have hanged himself in jail before his OWN apparent prison suicide

TECH MAVERICK John McAfee wasn’t convinced that Jeffrey Epstein hanged himself in jail two years before his committing his own apparent suicide in a Spain prison cell.

“The man was six-foot-one, he hung himself from a bed that was only five-foot-seven in a manner that managed to break his neck in multiple places similar to someone being physically strangled,” he said after Epstein’s 2019 death. “You add all that stuff up, and I don’t see how a suicide is possible.”

Rex 10 McAfee publicly claimed at the time that Epstein, who was facing a child sex trafficking case back in the summer of 2019, didn’t commit suicide as had been widely reported

The alleged 75-year-old tax dodging scion McAfee – who was on the run from the feds – was found dead inside of a Spanish jail cell on Wednesday, according to his attorney. 

His demise came hours after a judge ordered his extradition to the United States.

Conversely, Epstein was found dead in his New York City federal prison cell after allegedly hanging himself on August 9, 2019, while being remanded pending trial for child sex trafficking,

Three months after Epstein’s passing, McAfee wasn’t buying the official suicide storyline.

Twitter 10 His death came days after his wife Janice posted a Father’s Day note on Twitter that the man was suffering “mentally and physically” while being help as a prisoner

“His cellmate was taken from his cell six hours before his death, the video cameras were off and the guards in that cell block were sent home early due to cleaning.

“You add all that stuff up, and I don’t see how a suicide is possible.”

The fugitive antivirus guru, who was also pursued by Belize police as a “person of interest” in connection to the murder of an American expat, brought up potential surveillance footage of visitors to Epstein’s Little St. James island domicile.

McAfee continued to infer that the surveillance footage rumors would make it hard to buy into the 66-year-old man’s death by suicide 

“Keep in mind Jeffrey Epstein had surveillance gear on that island,” he said at the time.

“It would not be beyond belief to think that he might have kept recordings of whatever activities were happening on the island and people found out about it.

“It’s not something that politicians and people in power would like to have known – so it could be any one of hundreds of people or all of them acting together.”

He later posted a clarification on Instagram, captioned next to a composite of his face pasted on a figure holding a gun with Epstein behind him with his hands up – backtracking from any innuendo that Epstein was murdered.

But he believes Epstein definitely didn’t die of suicide.

@theemrsmcafee/Twitter 10 Janice McAfee accused US authorities to be “determined” he would die in prison, according to a tweet she posted

@theemrsmcafee/Twitter 10 McAfee’s wife, Janice, posted the tweet on Father’s Day – days before he would die of apparent suicide

The entry reads: “How did this get started?

“It’s popping up all over the place. I never said Jeffrey Epstein was murdered. I said he didn’t commit suicide. Not the same. Could be alive. Could have never existed. Maybe murdered. I dunno. 

“I only know he didn’t commit suicide.”

But authorities said an initial investigation found there were no signs of foul play, the Spanish newspaper El Pais reported.

Police sources told the paper that McAfee had been dragged from his cell after reportedly hanging himself – with a justice department official insisting: “Everything points to suicide”.

The gun-toting fugitive had appeared to suspect he was at risk of being killed. 

In his tweet two years ago, McAfee appeared to show off a tattoo reading “whackd” as he accused US officials of targeting him.

“Getting subtle messages from U.S. officials saying, in effect: ‘We’re coming for you McAfee! We’re going to kill yourself’,” he wrote.

“I got a tattoo today just in case. If I suicide myself, I didn’t. I was whackd. Check my right arm.”

What’s more, his ex-prostitute wife Janice McAfee had gone public on Father’s Day warning about the man suffering “mentally and physically” while locked up and accused authorities to be “determined” he would die in prison.

The woman claimed to have told her husband that he was “loved and appreciated” as she claimed that his “honesty got him in trouble with corrupt governments” in a Twitter post on Sunday.

The gun-toting fugitive had been in hiding from the US authorities, while avoiding officials in Belize – where he is a “person of interest” in a mysterious slaying of neighbor, Gregory Faull, 52, back in 2012.

McAfee was arrested again on October 3 of last year at El Prat airport in Spain, as he was about to flee the country to Turkey.

It was then that federal prosecutors in Tennessee indicted McAfee with evading taxes after failing to report income made from promoting cryptocurrencies while he engaged in consulting work, booked speaking engagements and sold the rights to his life story for a documentary.

The indictment accused McAfee of failing to pay taxes between 2014 to 2018 “despite receiving considerable income from these sources.”

It goes on to suggest McAfee tried to hide assets and not pay taxes by “directing his income to be paid into bank accounts and cryptocurrency exchange accounts in the names of nominees” and also hid from the IRS various “real property, a vehicle, and a yacht, in the names of others.”

McAfee sold his antivirus company to Intel for $7.7billion in 2011.

The Tennessee indictment said McAfee failed to file tax returns from 2014 to 2018, despite receiving “considerable income” from several sources.
