CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A judge ordered that hair samples be taken from a Marmet woman accused of murder.
Kelsey Marie Legg, 20, appeared in circuit court Tuesday. She is charged with the killing of 29-year-old Kareem Hunter, whose family reported him missing in late September.
Hunter's body was found in early November in a shallow Raleigh County grave. No cause of death has been released yet.
Kanawha Circuit Judge Paul Zakaib ordered that hair samples, requested by prosecutors, will be collected from Legg Wednesday morning at South Central Regional Jail. For testing purposes, prosecutors said 25 strands of hair are required.
Legg's case has not yet been presented to a grand jury. She is being held without bond.
Police were led to Legg's 83rd Street apartment in the investigation into Hunter's disappearance. They discovered what they called a crime scene.
Inside, recent remodeling including new paint and carpet was evident, police said. But they still found blood spatters on the ceiling and bloodstains elsewhere.
Authorities have obtained surveillance video from a home improvement store showing Legg and two men purchasing the supplies on Sept. 24.
Her brother, Matt Legg, told investigators that his sister lured Hunter to her apartment as part of a kidnapping plan. No others have been charged in the incident, but authorities believe more arrests are to come.
Hunter's mother has said that Legg was a friend of her son's who visited their home, sometimes had meals with them and got along well with the family.
Hunter was the father of four children.Police and prosecutors have not said what the motive for the kidnapping and murder was.
