OCONTO, WI (WTAQ) - Bond has been set for a man charged in the 1998 homicide of 19-year-old Chad McLean.

52-year-old Peter Hanson is suspected of allegedly fatally shooting McLean in Februray 1998 near Abrams. McLean's body was found on March 22, 1998 in the Pensaukee River.

Hanson is being held on a $500,000 cash bond.

After 15 years, authorities announced on Friday that they believe Hanson was involved in McLean's death. Hanson appeared in court Thursday. 

Hanson also had a court appearance on child pornography and drug charges stemming from a November arrest. 

His defense attorney on those two cases, John Wallace, told FOX 11 Wednesday he is unsure if he will be representing Hanson on the charge of first-degree intentional homicide.

Hanson is due back in court for a preliminary hearing in the homicide case April 24.
