Adrian Golden’s back in court

CALHOUN COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI)- A suspect who spent nearly a year and a half on the run faced a judge Tuesday.

Adrian Golden is accused of the kidnapping and attempted murder of his wife Kimberly Sisk, before leading law enforcement on a two-state search.

Tuesday, he was back in Calhoun County for his first court appearance.

Tensions were high in the Calhoun County Courthouse Tuesday as Adrian Golden stood in front Judge Kelly Luther, but for many people, there was also an air of relief.

He is charged with Attempted Murder in the First Degree after he allegedly shot his wife in the head in 2017.

His plea, not guilty.

But there are more courtrooms and judges in his future.

“So they have an indictment of kidnapping in Pontotoc County, which is where the incident started, and unfortunately it ended up in Calhoun County which is where the attempted murder charge took place,” said Sheriff Greg Pollan.

Golden has been held in the Central Mississippi Correctional Facility in Rankin County since his arrest in October of last year.

He spent nearly a year and a half on the run before the law caught up with him in Texarkana, Arkansas.

For Sheriff Greg Pollan it was the moment he had been waiting for.

“Huge relief that was probably the longest 16 months of my life. The Sheriff’s Office, the Bruce Police Department, which is actually where they started, we were in constant contact every day, every other day, texting, call, and emailing between us and the Marshall services we would get tips. In the end, we got that one piece of information that we needed, and in the Marshall, service was able to do their job,” said Sheriff Pollan.

Golden’s trial has been set for November 19 and Kimberly Sisk, Golden’s alleged victim, said she will be there.

“She’s doing really really good, all things considered, from where she was day one to today is unbelievable. It’s actually a miracle for a person to be shot in the head with a handgun and as a matter of fact. She text me last night. So I’m in contact with her quite often. She chose not to be here today, but she sent me a message saying she will be sitting front row November 19. It’s the first day of trial,” said Sheriff Pollan.

Golden was denied bond for the Attempted Murder First-Degree charge.

He will face a judge in Pontotoc for the Kidnapping charge at a later date.
