An 18-year-old aviation student made his first court appearance on Thursday in connection with murder charges in Geneva County.

Authorities arrested Matthew Leske for fatally shooting 21-year-old Brent Cook during an argument early Monday morning.

The incident took place in the front yard of his girlfriends' home in the Hacoda Community.

Cook was reportedly the ex-boyfriend of the woman.

Thursday, Judge Charles Fleming set Leske's bond at $150,000 dollars.

If released, the defendant is not to have any contact with the victim's family.

As of late Thursday afternoon, Leske remained behind bars in the Geneva County Jail.
