Authorities called the attack on the Tree of Life synagogue the deadliest anti-Semitic act in US history.

US media reported that Bowers entered the courtroom without a wheelchair, bandaged on the arm from the injuries he received during a gun fight with police on Saturday.

During his first court appearance, he had come in a wheelchair and spoke little.

The court hearing comes the same day as crowds of mourners will lay more victims are buried and as their memorials continue to grow.

Bowers has been put up at the Butler County Jail without bond.
