Trial date set in double-murder case

The man accused of killing Crystal Warner and Robert Jones will spend nearly another year in jail before going to trial.

During Craig Pennington’s pretrial conference on Wednesday, March 14, a tentative trial date of Feb. 5 at 8:30 a.m. was set. A venue has not been set.

For the victims’ families, it’s a small victory that’s been a long time coming.

Warner’s mother, Mary Reeve, approved of the court date as both sides prepare for trial.
