A Clark County murder suspect made a court appearance Wednesday.

19-year-old Thomas Messina of Windsor faces three counts of first degree murder related to the January death of a Casey man in his home.  Authorities found the body of Gregory Scott Collins while fighting a fire in his residence.  Investigators have ruled the fire suspicious in nature.

During Wednesday's pre-trial hearing, it was determined there are no pre-trial motions pending.  However, it was shared that DNA testing has not been completed.

A further pre-trial hearing is set for May 19.  Messina is due to go on trial June 10.

Messina is being held in Clark County Jail on $500,000 bond.
