Court appearance delayed for 86-year-old murder suspect

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - The court appearance for an 86-year-old man accused of murder was delayed to Friday.

John Dickey O'Bryant was scheduled to appear in front of a Richmond County judge for the first time Wednesday, but the court appearance was rescheduled because O'Bryant's family hired a private attorney for him.

O'Bryant is accused of shooting and killing 65-year-old Karl Hardge on March 14 at a house on Leland Drive. O'Bryant is charged with murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
