YAKIMA, WA -- It took four corrections officers to escort a Yakima murder suspect into court on Friday.

28-year-old Darren Wright acted unruly throughout the hearing, even cursing at the judge.

Wright is accused of beating 54-year-old David Johnson to death on Monday at Harlan Landing Park. Police said the two got into an argument over religious beliefs just before Johnson was killed.

Wright's bail is set at $1 million.
