SPOKANE, Wash.--A suspected serial killer faced a judge Tuesday after refusing to appear in court Monday. Tonight at 6:00, KREM 2’s Hayley Guenthner looks into what rights inmates have when it comes to court appearances and how long a judge must wait before issuing a drag order.

A drag order is when a judge can force suspects to attend court if they refuse to voluntarily appear. Judges make their own decision on whether or not a drag order will be issued.
