MARYSVILLE (CBS13) — The man who was the center of a three-day murder manhunt faced a judge for the first time on Wednesday.

All six of the suspects in the New Year’s Eve slaying were in a Yuba County courtroom and charged with second-degree murder, including Marcus Nelson Hume, 32, the alleged triggerman whom U.S. Marshals deputies and Marysville police officers found holed up in a home in Linda on Tuesday afternoon.

Hume had been on the run since Saturday, when investigators say he shot and killed 38-year-old Steven “Sam” Moore. The father of three was reportedly shot in the face with a sawed-off shotgun.

Five other suspects, including two teens ages 16 and 17, were quickly arrested in connection with the crime that same night.

Wednesday afternoon, all the suspects went before a judge as family members watched, many of them in tears.

The 16-year-old juvenile suspect broke down in court, and afterward his attorney spoke with reporters.

“They’re devastated,” Robert Marquez said of the suspect’s family. “They’re scared to death. From what the family was saying, he’s never been in trouble before. He’s a neophyte to do with anything to do with any kind of crime.”

William Vincent Silliman, 21, who is stationed at nearby Beale Air Force, is one of the suspects alleged to have accompanied Hume to the confrontation that turned deadly. The other suspects are David Leslie Eneix, 27; Kari Felcia Mulkey, 20; Samson Aaron Mulkey and Jesse Michael Garate. The latter two are the juveniles but are being charged as adults.

No one entered a plea Wednesday. The arraignment was continued until next Thursday, Jan. 12.

    Why is this 2nd degree murder instead of first degree? He brought a sawed off shotgun that shows intent to me. As far as the 16 year old neophyte…he sure chose the wrong crime to begin with, he can rot with the rest of them!

  2. joel says:

    This system has already failed the victim like so many others. 6 suspects involved, 1 dead. This crime should be 1st Degree. No question about it.
