HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Monday for two men charged with killing a 27-year-old Hutchinson woman.
The Hutchinson News reports that the hearing for 48-year-old Billy Joe Craig Jr. and 32-year-old Charles Christopher Logsdon is scheduled to begin Monday in Reno County court.
Craig and Logsdon are charged with first-degree murder in the death last June of Jennifer Heckel.
The judge in the hearing has to determine if there’s probable cause that Craig and Logsdon committed the crime. If he finds probable cause, the case moves to trial and a date is set for arraignments, when pleas will be entered.
Heckel was shot to death in her home on the north side of Hutchinson. Her 5-year-old son was in the home when the shooting occurred and alerted neighbors.
