    I haven't been able to find anything about court dates on line. It may be that they are waiting on autopsy results for more charges before setting any dates.

    I did find this. BBM

    Thank you for the link watcher! I looked at the other ones & they sure don't keep their records updated. One was from 2017, and another was for Feb. 5th...

    Elywn was also in court on the 5th, but didn't see anything for him. Guess he had no motions, just a prelim hearing.

    A Superior Court judge denied bond for Elwyn Crocker Sr. and for Wright, who told investigators he was previously unaware the girl was dead.

    Also charged are Candice Crocker's mother, Kim Wright, and Kim Wright's boyfriend, Roy Anthony Prater.

    All five suspects remain jailed.

    The Judge has also imposed a gag order prohibiting attorneys and investigators from discussing the case outside court.

    It came before the vote on a bill authored by Rep. Bill Hitchens, a Republican from Effingham County, where the bodies of Mary and Elwin Crocker Jr. were unearthed. Five people, including four family members, have been charged in connection with their torture, starvation and death. The bill was intended to make it harder for people to pull their children out of school under the guise of homeschooling them without actually doing so.

    The bill had originally required more reporting from parents who home- school their children, but ran into resistance from the Georgia Home Education Association, which argued that more home-school regulation would not result in less abuse.

    After intense negotiations and seven or eight rewrites, the final version simply directs schools to contact the Division of Family and Children Services when parents of children who have dropped out of school don’t file a notice of intent to home-school them. It passed, 135-28.

    From your last link.

    We are waiting for the next court hearing. In the meantime, investigators have yet to release the exact cause of Mary and Elwyn Jr.'s death.
