Harrisburg Man Charged with Murder Makes First Court Appearance

HARRISBURG – A Harrisburg man charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of Mishealia Meredith last month appeared in court for the first time Wednesday in Saline County.

Alexander McWilliam was arrested last week after a standoff with police at a hotel in Morganfield, KY. He was sent back to Saline County earlier this week.

During McWilliam’s appearance, a judge set his bond at $1 million. McWilliam will have his preliminary hearing on April 22.

McWilliam could face 25 years to life behind bars if found guilty.
