A Sedalia man charged with murder will be in a Boone Co. courtroom Monday afternoon.

Rudy Perez, 33, is accused of killing Robert Hill, 78, of Warsaw, on February 1st.  Both were patients at Truman Memorial Veterans’ Hospital in Columbia at the time. 

According to court records, Perez was arrested in Sedalia three days before Hill’s death after an unidentified man said Perez punched him in the face.  Perez was not immediately charged and was released from custody.  Pettis County prosecutors filed assault charges shortly after the alleged murder in Columbia.

Perez will go before the judge Monday at 1:30 p.m.

His next hearing is scheduled for September 23rd with a trial date set for October 1st.
