Posted:
YANKTON, S.D. (KTIV) -

A man accused of murdering his uncle will be back in court a week from next Wednesday.  According to the Yankton Press and Dakotan, 28-year-old Joshua Hudson made his initial appearance Friday, where bond was set at a million dollars.  A preliminary hearing is set for March 19th.

Authorities believe Hudson used a blacksmith hammer to kill 46-year-old Todd Hudson, Joshua's uncle.  An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.

It was Todd Hudson's truck they say Joshua was driving after Hudson's body was discovered in a mobile home in Yankton.

The assistant county attorney said Hudson has four active warrants in South Dakota and also faces charges of possession of a controlled substance, burglary, and forgery.  Joshua Hudson was apprehended after a long police pursuit through Iowa and South Dakota.
