GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – A man extradited from Great Britain to Colorado that is facing a murder charge in the 1997 death of his wife is being held in jail without bond.

Marcus Bebb-Jones, 47, made his first court appearance Tuesday. Garfield County sheriff’s officials said Bebb-Jones arrived Saturday in Glenwood Springs.

He is accused of killing his wife, Sabrina Bebb-Jones, 31. She disappeared in 1997 and her skull was found in 2004 on Douglas Pass in northwestern Colorado.

The couple owned a hotel in Grand Junction about 240 miles west of Denver.

A public defender was appointed to represent Bebb-Jones.

Police arrested Bebb-Jones in Worcestershire, England in 2009. He was extradited after U.S. prosecutors said they wouldn’t seek the death penalty if he is convicted.
