A Johnson City man charged with first-degree murder in an April

shooting outside an apartment complex appeared in court Friday on a

violation of probation charge and could face more prison time.

Marcus Gergish, 34, was on probation for nine counts of identity theft,

forgery and failure to appear when he allegedly shot and killed Timothy

Peregoy Sr., of Kingsport.

Last year, Gergish pleaded guilty

to those other charges and was sentenced to six years in prison. He was

serving the sentence on probation.
