ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A man who had been on the run from a murder charge for 18 months faced a judge this morning at the Dougherty County jail. 

Samuel Bryant was wanted for killing 26 year old Cordale Brown in November of 2014.

Judge John Salter issued no bond for Bryant, who is also being held on a probation violation. Has applied for a public defender.

Cordale Brown's body was found in the burned apartment in the 1700 block of Clark Avenue on a Saturday morning, when firefighters were called to put out a fire.

Investigators believe a Molotov cocktail device could have started the fatal fire. An Autopsy found Brown died of smoke and soot inhalation.

At the time, firefighters said this was a unit of the Albany Homes Apartments.  It had been red tagged, and was supposed to be vacant.  The apartment had no power.  

Albany Police tried to find Bryant for felony murder and two counts of aggravated assault, and he was a  Most Wanted suspect for more than a year.

Authorities said the 41 year old Bryant was arrested around 4:30 Wednesday afternoon on East Road in Albany.
