Preliminary hearing for Kason King trial to resume Monday

(WTVM) -

The preliminary hearing for Kason King, 28, began today and will resume at 8 a.m. on Monday morning, July 29. King is accused of murdering 32-year-old Jarrod Smith in June.

King also faces assault and kidnapping charges after investigators say he forced his ex-girlfriend to drive him to his car after the shooting, and threatened to kill her.

Sgt. Shannon Rollins testified for the entire length of the first day, saying that King denies involvement in the murder.

More witnesses will be called Monday.

The judge will use the preliminary hearing to decide if King's case should be bound over to a grand jury to consider indictments.
