A Jessamine County man is in jail charged in connection with a murder that happened in California 23 years ago.
Phillip Jude Kennedy, 47, of 703 S. Central Ave., is lodged at the Jessamine County Detention Center with bond denied. He was arrested Friday night at the Nicholasville Police Department.
He was arraigned by video Wednesday in Jessamine Circuit Court, and an extradition hearing has been set for Monday, Oct. 17, at 2 p.m.
Kennedy is charged in California in connection with a homicide in Long Beach, Calif. in 1982.
He lived in Hawthorne, Calif. and Lancaster before moving to Nicholasville in 2000.
He has been in the Jessamine County jail twice before this year: the first time on April 28 for domestic assault, and again on July 31 for violating an emergency protective order.
