The man arrested in the case of a missing Nelson County teenager will remain behind bars until a January court appearance.

Forty-eight-year-old Randy Allen Taylor of Lovingston appeared Tuesday in Nelson County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court.

Taylor was arrested Sunday and charged with abduction in connection with the disappearance of 17-year-old Alexis Murphy.

Murphy was last seen Aug. 3 by her family. Her car was found in the parking lot of a multiplex in Charlottesville three days later.

Media outlets report that Taylor appeared in person, handcuffed, shackled and wearing a gray jail-issued jumpsuit.

Taylor was appointed a lawyer and a court date was set for Jan. 9.

Nelson County Commonwealth's Attorney Anthony Martin didn't comment after the hearing but said more information was forthcoming.
