We have the latest update on the case of 21-year-old Mavrick Fisher.
Fisher is the Deaf man charged in the death of 25-year-old Grant Whitaker, another Deaf man.
Whitaker’s body was found in a remote area of Lake County California after he went missing in August.
Fisher admitted to killing Whitaker and has been in jail ever since awaiting trial.
On Wednesday Fisher had a preliminary hearing.
Sign1News just spoke with the clerk at Lake County Superior Court.
During the preliminary hearing the judge ruled Fisher was in felony violation on counts one, two and four.
Count one is murder, count two is assault with a deadly weapon but not a firearm and count four is grand theft of a firearm.
Count three, theft from a human body, was dismissed.
This means a court ruled there is sufficient evidence for Fisher to answer to all three counts.
An arraignment on those charges will be held on November 5 and from that hearing a trial date will be set.
