The Long Beach teen charged with killing a Lynbrook newlywed is next due in court Wednesday, court records show.

Maxwell T. Sherman, 18, was remanded to the Nassau County jail in East Meadow without bail on Sunday. He's charged with second-degree murder.

Sherman, of 21 Louisiana St., stood silently before Judge David Sullivan at his arraignment Sunday. His attorney, Jenna Suppon of the Nassau Legal Aid Society, asked the judge for "reasonable" bail, but Sullivan denied the request.

Daverin's husband, Air Force Airman 1st Class Kashawn Gresham of Freeport, and several relatives and friends, sobbed in court as the charges were read aloud.

"We're hoping that justice will be done," Daverin's sister, Suzanne Caldeira, 30, said before Sunday's hearing.

Gresham walked into the courtroom with his arms around Daverin's mother, Kathleen Daverin. They declined to speak to a group of news reporters and photographers.

The day before his arrest, Sherman was interviewed by CBS 2 News. He said he'd met Daverin the night before and was "amazed" by news of her death.

The reporter asked about his reaction to the slaying.

"Amazed, kind of," Sherman replied. "It's right in the middle of town; surprised."
