Accused Miley Cyrus stalker due back in Ga. court

A 53-year-old Georgia man accused of trying to stalk teen pop star Miley Cyrus is expected in court just two days after a grand jury refused to indict him.

Mark McLeod (MIK-lowd) is scheduled to appear Friday morning before a State Court judge in Savannah, where he's been jailed since August.

Police say McLeod twice traveled to nearby Tybee Island looking for the 16-year-old "Hannah Montana" star as she filmed a movie on the Georgia coast. Investigators said he resisted officers who tried to remove him from the set.

A grand jury on Wednesday declined to indict McLeod on felony charges. He still faces misdemeanor charges of attempted stalking and disorderly conduct.

McLeod's attorney says his client never posed a threat.
