Bond has been denied for the man accused of killing a well known Columbia reverend.
Frankie McGee did not show up to the hearing Tuesday morning, but prosecutors say McGee killed Eichelberger with a winch bar.
Investigators add that they found DNA evidence that links McGee to the murder.
Prosecutors say they may seek the death penalty against McGee.
In May of 2009, 87-year-old Eichelberger was involved in a beating in his home and suffered injuries that later resulted in his death.
Eichelberger's wallet and other valuable items were left behind.
