ATLANTA (AP) -- A man accused of killing a volunteer at a Georgia megachurch waived a scheduled court appearance -- the second time he's done so in the past two days.

A handcuffed Floyd Palmer appeared nervous as he shifted his head from side to side at the back of a small hearing room in the Fulton County Jail. But he was never brought before the judge. A jailer led him away and a representative of the public defender's office said he was waiving the hearing.

It was the second time that relatives of 39-year-old Greg McDowell showed up for Palmer's first court appearance only to find out it wouldn't happen.

Authorities say Palmer calmly walked into a chapel Wednesday and shot McDowell to death at World Changers Church International south of Atlanta.
