$1 Million Bond for Alleged Cop Killer

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- The man accused of killing a Louisville Metro Police officer in a crash last week is being held in jail on $1 million bond.

36-year-old James Woods was arraigned on charges that include murder, assault, fleeing police and possession of a gun by a felon.

Police say Woods was fleeing officers when he crashed his car into Officer Nick Rodman's cruiser at a Portland neighborhood intersection.    Rodman died the next day.

Woods, who was injured in the crash, was on a hospital gurney when he appeared before a judge at Metro Corrections.   

Rodman's funeral is Tuesday at Southeast Christian Church.
