A man charged in an Oroville murder has been transferred from state prison to appear in a Butte County courtroom. 23 year old Derrik Blanton is accused of killing one man and wounding three other people during an attempted robbery last year. He had been arrested in Sacramento and convicted on weapons and drug charges. The Oroville Mercury Register is reporting Blanton was in a local courtroom Tuesday, but did not enter a plea.
