(HUTCHINSON, Kan.) — Billy Joe Craig Jr. and Charles Christopher Logsdon were bound over for trial on six charges, including first degree murder and robbery for the mistaken identity murder of Hutchinson mother Jennifer Heckel.
Reno Co. District Court Judge Joseph McCarville made the ruling after a three day preliminary hearing in which he listened to testimony from nearly two dozen witnesses.
McCarville scheduled a March 5th, 2012 arraignment for Logsdon and Craig. They're charged with the death of 27-year-old Jennifer Heckel. Heckel was found shot to death inside her Hutchinson home last June.
During the three day hearing, witnesses testified Heckel was not the intended target of a crime. However, prosecutors didn't disclose exactly how Craig and Logsdon ended up at her home.
The prosecution didn't have to provide all of the details. The purpose of a preliminary hearing is to prove to the judge there's enough evidence to send the case to trial.
