BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - The man police say killed a woman on Chico State's campus appeared in a Butte County Courtroom on Thursday.

Samuel Johnson, 27, appeared in court on Thursday without an attorney. 

He is suspected of killing 55-year-old Linda Blacksten on the Chico State campus. Police said that they believe Johnson killed Blacksten by kicking her in the head. 

A judge told Johnson that he is facing serious charges and needed to decide what he is going to do in this case, but he did not enter a plea. 

He is scheduled to be back in court on Wednesday, Nov. 7, at 8:30 a.m.

Get out and enjoy this beautiful weather tonight! If you do head out and plan to stay out late, probably bring an extra later to throw on for when the sun sets as temperatures will be cooling off into the low to mid 60s for the valley by midnight and low to mid 40s by tomorrow morning.
