A Boston man was arraigned Friday morning in Barnstable District Court on charges in connection with the fatal shooting of Eric Christensen in Hyannis earlier this month.
Judge Edward F.X. Lynch ordered Justin Peckham, 29, held without bail.
Peckham faces a charge of murder and one count of assault and battery by means of the discharge of a firearm, according to a release Friday from the Cape and Islands District Attorney’s Office. Peckham pled not guilty to the charges.
Lynch scheduled a probable cause hearing for Jan. 28.
No further details were available Friday afternoon from the district attorney’s office.
On Dec. 8, Barnstable police responded to a call at 91 Oakview Terrace in Hyannis around 6 p.m., according to the district attorney’s office. Police entered Christensen’s home, where they found him unresponsive on his kitchen floor with a gunshot wound to the head.
