Dang - the court link comes up blank... :(

I'll wait a few hours & see if there is any update on his prelim hearing yesterday - unless someone can find an article??

TIA if you can! I'm pretty sure he was "bound over for trial" and I have his arraignment date as 2/7/22.

Not sure I understand "what" is going on - I do see he has supervening charges - 2 for murder (1st & 2nd) & child abuse intentional. Previous charges were:
1st degree murder per domestic violence, 2nd degree murder per domestic violence & child abuse per domestic violence.
This was the only case that showed up for him. Hopefully his arraignment date is still the same on 2/7/22. I'll keep an eye out on this.

A Fort Mohave man accused in the death of his girlfriend’s 1-year-old child has now asked a Mohave Superior Court Judge to allow him to reside in California as he awaits trial on charges of first-degree murder.

IMHO he shouldn't be able to leave his cell very often or his housing unit at all!

Wonder how the bold-holder feels about a trip out-of-state?
