Jonathan Harris made his court appearance via video Thursday from a jail where he’s being held without bail. He didn’t enter a plea during the brief hearing.
The latest photo obtained by Eyewitness News shows Harris being booked for his arraignment.
The 30-year-old Johnstown man was arrested Wednesday as he got off a bus in Pittsburgh. He’s also charged with robbery, theft and more in the Aug. 22 slaying of Christina Carlin-Kraft.
Officials said Kraft took a ride-hailing service to Philadelphia, met Harris and the two later returned to her Ardmore apartment, into which she had moved the previous week. Kraft’s body was found in her bloodstained bedroom that evening after police went to check on her.READ MORE: 'It's Never Going To End': Loved Ones Of David Padro Jr. Voice Gun Violence Frustrations At 22-Year-Old's Vigil
Montgomery County District Attorney says Kevin Steele Harris is facing first and second-degree murder charges. In a press conference held Wednesday, Steele explained that Kraft’s death was “violent”.
Authorities say a robbery also took place inside Kraft’s home days before her murder.
Sources tell Eyewitness News that authorities obtained surveillance pictures of Andre Milton, of Philadelphia, going into Kraft’s apartment. He then left alone. Police think he robbed her while she was sleeping.
It’s not known if Harris has retained an attorney.MORE NEWS: Philadelphia Weather: Steamy Start To Week As Temperatures To Reach 90s On Monday
