iStock/Thinkstock(WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.) — A North Carolina man is scheduled to appear in court Monday for his first appearance on the charge of murder in the June death of a popular school counselor.

Sharman Odom, 34, was arrested Saturday, accused of murdering Maggie Daniels.

Daniels was found dead in her apartment June 28. According to police, physical evidence obtained during the course of the investigation connected Odom — a neighbor in the Windsor Apartment complex — to Daniels’ death.

Odom was arrested Saturday in Winston-Salem. He smirked as he was led out of the Newton police department, but declined to speak to gathered reporters.

Before her death, Daniels served as a counselor at Discovery High School in Newton, a 13,000-population town located northwest of Charlotte.
