The home invader wasn't carrying a weapon, added Hackstock.

A police officer who responded to an April home invasion at Eminem's house in MI testified in court Wednesday that the intruder told the rapper he meant to kill him.

He initially believed it was his nephew before realizing it was an intruder, Clinton Township officer Adam Hackstock told the court.

Hughes' attorney, Richard Glanda, told Fox News that his client denies ever saying that.

Since the incident, Hughes has been in custody and charged with first-degree home invasion and malicious destruction of property.

Hughes, seated right, appeared in court on Wednesday.

According to local media, Eminem was not in court Wednesday, but his lawyer witnessed the proceedings via video.

According to the court's decision, Matthew Hughes' bail was set at $50,000, far more than he can afford.

Hackstock said he arrived to the gated community to find a security guard wrestling with Hughes on the ground.

Eminem performs at the Oscars at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood in February 2020.

As the case moves on for Hughes, he was in court today where the home invasion was discussed at length.

Hughes wasn't armed when he was discovered in Eminem's home in Clinton Township, Michigan.

An arraignment will take place on September 28 after Judge Jacob Femminineo Jr. found probable cause to continue with a trial.

As previously reported, back on April 5, Hughes gained access to the "Godzilla" rapper's home around 4 a.m. after reportedly breaking a kitchen window with a paving stone.

Hughes' attorney, who was appointed by the court, reportedly sought a competency evaluation but was turned down by his client.
