OROVILLE, Calif. - The man charged in the murder of an Oroville grandmother appeared before a judge in court Thursday morning.

Brian Madding was emotional and cried in the courtroom.

He's accused of killing 86-year-old Greta Putnam in her home at the Cottonwood Estates Mobile Home Park. 

Her body was found the morning of Nov. 8.

Madding was arrested last week, but his attorney did not enter a plea on Thursday, saying he needed more time to review the evidence.

The case was continued to June 6.
