TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - Charlie Adelson was booked into the Leon County Jail the evening of Monday, April 25, and will go before a judge Tuesday, April 26, according to court records.

Adelson appeared remotely in a Zoom hearing in Broward County on Friday, April 22. He is charged with murder and conspiracy in connection to the 2014 murder of FSU Law Professor Dan Markel.

In the Broward hearing, Adelson’s attorney asked about a bond hearing. The judge said at the time that could not come until Adelson was brought to Tallahassee to face charges.

A Leon County grand jury indicted Adelson Wednesday, April 20, on charges of murder, conspiracy to commit murder and solicitation of murder. He was arrested Thursday, April 21, at his home in Broward County.

Leon County prosecutors allege Adelson carried out a murder-for-hire plot to kill Markel because of a child custody battle between Markel and his ex-wife Wendi Adelson, Charlie Adelson’s sister.
