Daniel Nations is being held in jail for felony menacing and reckless endangerment.
The man accused of threatening people with a hatchet near Mt. Herman made his first formal appearance in Teller County court Monday.
Thirty-one-year-old Daniel Nations is facing charges of felony menacing and criminal trespassing in El Paso County in connection to the Mt. Herman threats.
He avoided showing his face on the way in and out of court.
Nations was stopped in Woodland Park for having a broken tail light on Sept. 25, and officers said his car matched a description for the menacing case in El Paso County.
The menacing incidents reportedly happened near the same area where bicyclist Tim Watkins was shot and killed in mid-September.
Detectives with the El Paso County Sheriffs Office said they have made no public connection between Nations and the Tim Watkins homicide investigation.
Indiana State Police also came to Colorado to interview him about a double murder case of two teenage girls, but the officers left without announcing they had linked him to the case in Delphi, Indiana.
