Brief hearing in slaying of Memphis officer

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – A man charged with fatally shooting a Memphis police officer during a struggle on a residential street has completed a brief court appearance.

Twenty-nine-year-old Tremaine Wilbourn appeared via video link from jail Wednesday morning. He is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 33-year-old Officer Sean Bolton.

In the Shelby County General Sessions courtroom, Judge L. Lambert Ryan asked Wilbourn whether he had a lawyer. Wilbourn answered that he did not.

Ryan also asked whether Wilbourn has a weapons permit, and he again said no.

Ryan scheduled his next hearing for August 12.

Court records initially showed that Wilbourn was being held on a $9 million bond, but Ryan said in court that the amount is $10 million.
