CHESTERTOWN, Md. -- Attorneys for a former Baylor basketball player accused of murdering a teammate said they have not decided whether to appeal a warrant for his extradition to Texas.

Carlton Dotson appeared in court Tuesday, where he was served with a warrant signed by Gov. Robert Ehrlich. His lawyers have 10 days to appeal.

Authorities in Texas have accused Dotson, who is from Maryland, of shooting Patrick Dennehy in June. Dennehy's body was found in a field southeast of Waco, Texas.

After the hearing, Dotson's mother asked the public for support and privacy.

"We visit Carlton on a daily basis, on a weekly basis, and we are praying for him and we love him a lot," Gilreatha Johnson said.
