James McVay, left, listens to a public defender during an initial appearance before Court Commissioner Todd Meurer at the Dane County Public Safety Building in Madison, Wis., Thursday, July 7, 2011. McVay, 41, is charged with first-degree murder and burglary in the weekend stabbing death of Maybelle Schein. McVay, a convicted felon charged with killing 75-year-old hospice nurse Schein so he could steal her car and drive to Washington, D.C., described the woman during a TV interview as "collateral damage" in what he envisioned as a scheme to kill President Barack Obama.
