He is scheduled to appear in district court on April 16.

The courtroom in Eastside District Court, room 5, in which the preliminary hearing is scheduled is one that generally handles cases of domestic violence. In first degree murder cases like this one, what usually happens is that the prosecutor announces that the case has been or will be indicted and what the date of the arraignment will be in Circuit Court. Thank you Adam for explaining the domestic violence aspect of this case.
