The pre-trial hearing in the murder case of Charles Yoder has been continued, but the trial is still slated to start in August.

Yoder is charged with stabbing Ted Debany to death during an altercation in Effingham on May 7.  He's charged with first degree murder.

Yoder was to be in court Tuesday for his pre-trial hearing, but the matter was continued due to the absence of Public Defender Lupita Thompson.  Assistant Public Defender Janet Fowler appeared with Yoder in court.

The pre-trial was set for July 9.  Yoder is still set to go on trial August 5.
