Formal charges against 46-year-old Leo Joseph Kwaske will have to wait until Friday. The Jackson man refused to stand or speak Monday afternoon when he was brought to a Jackson court room.
Kwaske is the suspect in the murder of 59-year-old Shirley Meeks. Meeks was found dead Saturday in her Jackson apartment.
Both Kwaske and Meeks lived in the Reed Manor apartment building.
Kwaske will be charged with three murder, home invasion and mutilation of a body. All are felony charges.
Jackson police have not yet said how Meeks died.
