A 23-year-old man suspected of killing a Red Bluff police officer entered no plea at a court appearance in New Hamshire.

Andrew Hampton McCrae was ordered held without bail pending a preliminary hearing December 26th. McCrae was arrested Tuesday morning at a hotel in New Hampshire.

He told a newspaper reporter shortly before his surrender that he killed police officer David Mobilio last week to draw attention to police brutality.

A man identifying himself as McCrae also confessed in two letters posted on the Internet.

About five-thousand people attended Mobilio´s memorial service Tuesday in Red Bluff. He´s the first Red Bluff officer ever killed in the line of duty.
