Preliminary Hearing for Charles Harrison Postponed

The preliminary hearing for triple murder suspect Charles Harrison, who has been charged with three counts of Criminal Homicide in the Labor Day shooting deaths of Jamey Holland, Jessica Danielle Bentle, and Mooesto Retureta, has been postponed until Monday, January 15th, 2010.

“The preliminary hearing for Charles Harrison had been set for Monday, November 16th, 2009,” said Assistant District Attorney Justine Harris, “but for various reasons the date has been moved to January of 2010. While we believe Mr. Harrison committed these murders, we have the burden of proof and we will bring our evidence before Judge Ken Witcher in Lafayette and hopefully it will then be bound over to the grand jury on that date.”
