Former pro wrestler Stephen Ketcher is expected in court Thursday morning in Clay County on sexual assault charges out of Colorado.

Ketcher's first appearance is scheduled for 8 a.m. at the Clay County courthouse.

He was to be processed into the Clay County Jail and held pending extradition to Colorado on seven counts of sexual assault of a child.

Ketcher is a former professional wrestler, known as Steve "Gatorwolf" Ketcher and was a Western Region Heavyweight World Champion in the 1990s.
