Details about the hearing were not immediately available.

Moody is also charged with kidnapping and first-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Drexel, 17, was vacationing in Myrtle Beach in April 2009 when she disappeared. She was last seen outside the Blue Water Resort on Ocean Boulevard.

Her body was recovered in the harmony Township area of Georgetown County in May.

The Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office said Moody confessed after he was charged on May 4 with obstruction of justice. Fifteenth Circuit Solicitor Jimmy Richardson said Moody turned himself into his lawyer’s office on that day and from that point, Moody was taken into custody.

On that same day, officials said Moody provided information on where Drexel’s remains would be found.

The Georgetown County coroner listed Drexel’s cause of death and manner of death as undetermined.
