SUMTER COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

No bond was set for a Midlands man who is charged with the murder of his ex-wife. 

James Ginther stood alone in court on Wednesday as a Sumter judge ordered that his bond is set or denied by a circuit court judge in mid-January. Ginther did not say much but did look over to Suzette Ginther's family when they were acknowledged. 

James Ginther was booked into the Sumter-Lee Regional Detention after 6 p.m. on Tuesday following his extradition from Kentucky where he was arrested during a traffic stop. He faces kidnapping and murder charges in the death of Suzette Ginther

Suzette was found in a shallow grave in Camp Burnt Gin in Sumter County on Nov. 17. Ginther's live-in boyfriend reported her missing on Thursday when she didn't show up to work at Petsmart on Garners Ferry Road.

James Ginther was arrested in Louisville in relation to a South Carolina homicide following his involvement in a minor traffic accident. Records we found shows he had been married to Suzette Ginther and their divorce was finalized this year. 

Sheriff Anthony Dennis called Suzette's death "a crime of passion" and that James Ginther knew the area where she was buried well. 

There was a weapon in the vehicle James Ginther was traveling in, but it is unclear if it was the weapon used in Suzette's death. 

Suzette had two children, ages 8 and 6, and James was their father. James will appear in family court on Wednesday for an emergency custody hearing. 

James will then appear at a bond hearing on his charges at 2 p.m. on Wednesday at the Sumter-Lee Regional Detention Center.
