Kelli Bordeaux murder trial; suspect could face death penalty

The North Carolina sex offender who has been suspected of the murder of 23 year old Army Pfc. Kelli Bordeaux appeared in court Thursday and prosecutors have been considering seeking the death penalty. This happened after only a day after the remains which were believed to have belonged to Kelli, who disappeared two years ago, were found. During his first appearance in court, the suspect Nicholas Holbert was held on $250,000 bond when he was charged with the crime of first-degree kidnapping and first-degree murder.

While talking to the Fayetteville Observer, Cumberland County District Attorney Billy West said that "As the investigative file comes in we'll review the investigation to see if any factors exist and then we'll present that at a hearing later on in the process. Ultimately it will be a Superior Court judge's decision but we'll have to review that file to see what, if any, aggravating circumstances could possibly make it a capital murder case."

FoxNews.com was told by the detectives that they found a body North Carolina highway and they suspect it is of Kelli Bordeaux. The evidence which was found at the crime scene has led to the investigators to publicly acknowledge that they believe the remains belong to the 23-year-old woman. However, according to Lt. Todd Joyce of the Fayateville Police Department, the medical examiner in Raleigh must positively identify the body through dental records.

Joyce has told that a citizen called the authorities at exact 11 am on Wednesday and following this the police scoured the area and found the remains. There was no mention of the name of the caller or whether that caller had any connection with Kelli or Holbert. However, according to Bordeaux's mother, Johnna Henson, it was the 27 year old suspect who led the police to the remains of Kelli.

Kelli was last seen leaving the Froggy Bottoms bar in Fayetteville, N.C., around 1:20 a.m. on April 14, 2012 after which Holbert, a "bar hand" at Froggy Bottoms, dropped her off at the entrance of her neighborhood after which she was never seen again.
