    Another article about how he was captured:

    Federal prosecutors charged him with weapons violations, and he was scheduled to appear later Thursday in federal court in Springfield.

    Maher made an initial appearance Thursday in federal court in Springfield and asked for a court-appointed attorney because he didn't have enough money to pay for representation.

    Dressed in blue jeans and a gray polo shirt, with closely cropped salt-and-pepper hair, Maher appeared calm and respectful during the two-minute hearing. He is in the custody of U.S. marshals and was scheduled for a preliminary hearing Feb. 22.

    After being taken into custody, Maher told an FBI agent he had been using his brother's name since 1998, when he began working in the U.S. He said he obtained a Social Security number under that name.

    Brett told agents her husband also sometimes used name Stephen King.
