Winona, MN (WXOW) - -

The man wanted by police for his role in the fatal shooting of a Winona man earlier this month makes his first appearance in a Winona County courtroom.

23-year-old Lonnie Hudson appeared in court for a bond hearing on five felony charges including Murder in the Second Degree and Aggravated Robbery.

Hudson was brought back to the Winona County Jail on Thursday afternoon after waiving extradition from Wisconsin. He was arrested on October 23 in Wausau after a warrant was issued for his arrest in the fatal shooting of Adam Fort. The 31-year-old Fort was shot in the torso when two men went into his Gilmore Avenue apartment and demanded money. He later died of his wound. 

The two men fled the apartment following the shooting. The day after Hudson's arrest, the second man police believe was involved in the shooting, Reginald Burnett, was captured in Rockdale, Illinois. 

At Friday's hearing, bond was set at $5 million for Hudson.

Burnett, who also waived his extradition from Illinois, has yet to return to Minnesota. 

Another person, Kayla Mae Clay, is jailed on a felony charge of Aiding an Offender for helping Hudson after the shooting. She's in the Winona County Jail on a $250,000 bond after she was also extradited from Trempealeau County where she was arrested.
