      WOOD-TV reports that Knysz, 19, arrived at the Mason County Jail not long before 4 p.m. Friday afternoon.

      He was arraigned via video link in the Mason County District Court,

      Knysz was hospitalized at Munson Medical Center after being shot in the leg before police arrested him at a gas station in Dublin just hours after shooting Trooper Paul Butterfield.

      His wife, Sarah Knysz, was charged with being an accessory after the fact to the murder as well as unlawful driving away of an automobile. Both are five-year felonies. She is being held on a $250,000 bond.

      Eric Knysz faces five charges, WOOD-TV reports, including murder of a police officer, felony firearms, carrying a concealed weapon, auto theft and being a second-time offender.

      He was held without bond. It was also ordered that he may not have any contact with his wife, WOOD-TV reports.

      The couple may also be facing charges in Manistee County where they were arrested at a Wellston gas station.

      Knysz is expected to be back in court on September 25.
