SKOWHEGAN — Little new information emerged Monday at a court hearing for the man accused of shooting 60-year-old Everett Cameron of Anson.

Robert L. Nelson, 40, formerly of Anson, made his initial appearance in Somerset County Superior Court on Monday via a video-conferencing system.

Nelson told Judge Peter Darvin he had consulted with his attorney and understood the two charges against him.

Nelson is expected to plead to the charges against him at his next court date Oct. 4. Prosecutors are also expected to request he continue to be denied bail.

Nelson is being held at Somerset County Jail in Madison.

When asked if he understood the charge of murder, which alleges he intentionally or knowingly killed Cameron on Oct. 31, 2009, Nelson said, “Yeah.”

Darvin then asked if he understood the felony charge of possession of a firearm by a prohibited person. The charge claims Nelson was not allowed to have a gun after he was convicted in 1994 of burglarizing a vehicle.

Nelson responded, “Yes, sir.”

Nelson will remain held without bail in the shooting, but bail was set on the firearm count at $20,000 property or $5,000 cash.
