Shackled from wrist to feet, secured by law enforcement, and a bullet proof vest worn to save his life, Earl Kimrey, 32, of Dawson Cabin Road appeared in Onslow County Court this morning on charges of: Conceal of Death by “secretly disposing the body or Mariah,” Obstruction of Justice by failing to notify police of an unnatural cause of death, Breaking and Entering, Possession of Stolen Goods, and Felony Larceny.
Stood by his side was his court appointed attorney, Walter H. Paramore.
Judge James L. Moore appointed Paramore to represent Kimrey.
Judge Moore asked Kimrey to state his full name and asked him was he aware of the charges he’s charged with as well as receiving copies of the warrants.
In the courtroom, Sheriff Hans Miller stood against the wall and District Attorney Earnie Lee represented the state in the charges against Kimrey.
Kimrey was charged in the death of 3-year-old Mariah Kay Woods, who was reported missing Monday, Nov 27 on Friday evening.
Officials say, Mariah was already deceased when the call came in about her disappearance in a Friday press conference.
There was no bond reduction given to Kimrey, but the state requested the bond amount of $1,010,000.00 remains the same.
Kimrey’s next court date is scheduled for December 18, 2017.
