MOSCOW, Idaho.--The Moscow man arrested for murder on Sunday made his first court appearance on Tuesday. The judge refused to even set a bond for Nathaniel Nisbet.
Detectives said Nisbet murdered Charles McMichael when McMichael tried to change the locks at the home of Nisbet’s estranged wife.

"I've been trying to get rid of him the right way. He gets away with too much. Hopefully he won't get away with this,” said McMichael’s twin brother, Robert McMichael.

Robert McMichael said Nathan Nisbet is a monster.

Detectives said Nisbet shot McMichael multiple times. He was arrested Sunday without incident. He tried to paint himself as the victim according to court documents.

Court documents stated that Nisbet said, "It was like he was coming in for the kill. I was sure I was doomed."

Officers did not buy Nisbet’s story. Records showed Nisbet was not hurt. He told detectives he smoked marijuana the day of the murder.

"Nisbet said he does not remember pulling a gun and he does not remember pulling a trigger, but he stated ‘I feel like I know that I did,’” said detectives.

Court documents show that Nisbet said, "I keep a gun on me sometimes as a deterrent to make me not think violent thoughts."

Nisbet told Moscow Police that he was watching the news on the couch and eating gummy rings just a few minutes before things turned deadly.

Witnesses said he opened fire on McMichael two separate times.
