A first appearance will likely be set for next week, with Friday as a remote possibility, for John “Rob” Jordan, 47, who waived extradition.

Bail had not yet been set for Jordan, who is charged with murder and weapons possession.

Jordan was arrested without incident when he arrived in Greenville, S.C., with sons Nicholas, 8, and Anthony, 7, at 12:45 a.m. May 10.

Hours earlier, the boyd of his estranged wife, 39-year-old Tracey Jordan, was found at her Cynthia Gardens apartments on Garibaldi Avenue.

She’d been stabbed several times in the chest.

At that point, the 5-foot-10-inch, 215-pound Jordan had already been on the run for several hours, authorities said.
