The man accused of leading local law enforcement on a 14-hour manhunt has been formally charged with attempted murder.

Adam Fulford, 33, appeared via video conference from the Larimer County Jail for a hearing Tuesday. He was read 29 charges stemming from a series of alleged crimes that began March 30 and ended the next day. The Loveland man is accused of leading authorities on a manhunt west of Fort Collins, where he escaped capture until the next morning when he led police on a high-speed chase. He allegedly carjacked a Toyota Prius, fled and crashed it into a vehicle in Loveland, injuring a mother and her two children.

His formal charges include three counts of attempted murder with extreme indifference, a Class 2 felony; three counts of vehicular assault; five counts of motor vehicle theft and four counts of child abuse.

Prosecutors said Tuesday they expect an additional 15 to 20 charges to be added to the case by next week, which would bring the total number of charges to nearly 50.
