BUFFALO, New York — Suspected cop killer Ralph "Bucky" Phillips appeared in court for the first time Saturday, the day after he was captured at the end of a five-month manhunt.

He looked exhausted and unshaven during the four-minute hearing, the Associated Press said. He spoke little, answering "yes" when asked if he was Ralph Phillips and also if he had received a copy of the federal complaint charging him with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution, AP reported.
