WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A man charged over the weekend with murder in Wilmington made his first appearence in court today.

Investigators say Shelby Lentz, 19, stabbed and killed Martin Yakimovich Friday night.

A judge set bond for Lentz at $500,000. He’s expected back in court later this month.

Lentz says he stabbed Yakimovich in self defense.

    the Judge did not buy his story about defending himself and a battered female. Or the female’s version did not agree with his.

    In any event, $500,000 bond is not trivial.
