Boat killing suspect appears in court

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - An Alabama man accused of killing his captain on a fishing boat off Louisiana's coast has made his initial court appearance.

A spokeswoman for U.S. Attorney Jim Letten says 44-year-old Thomas J. Poole IV, of Foley, Ala., appeared before a federal magistrate on Tuesday but did not enter a plea to a second-degree murder charge. Poole is due back in court Thursday for a detention hearing.

The FBI arrested Poole on Friday on a charge he stabbed 53-year-old Michael Holman of Bon Secour, Ala., seven times in his back and once in his chest during an argument on their fishing boat last week. Holman was captain of the Miss Sharlott, and Poole was one of two crewmen.
