If from the examination before the judge or magistrate it appears that the person
held is the person charged with having committed the crime alleged and, except in
cases arising under G.S. 15A-726, that he has fled from justice, the judge or magistrate must, by a warrant reciting
the accusation, commit him to the county jail for such a time, not exceeding 30 days
and specified in the warrant, as will enable the arrest of the accused to be made
under a warrant of the Governor on a requisition of the executive authority of the
state having jurisdiction of the offense, unless the accused give bail as provided
in G.S. 15A-736, or until he shall be legally discharged.
