WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The man charged with murdering a young mother could face the death penalty.

Andrew Bernard Adams made his first appearance today for last week's murder of 24-year-old Latricia Ann Scott. Adams has a criminal record that goes back decades and includes rape and assault.

In addition to Scott's murder, Adams faces first degree rape and murder charges in a 1978 New Bern cold case.

District Attorney Ben David says Adams may face the death penalty as well as more charges in Scott's murder.

David says investigators plan to review cold case files to see if Adams fits any evidence of those unsolved crimes.
