A Hardin-Central student will return to a Ray County courtroom Tuesday afternoon. A preliminary hearing for Jeffrey Ellis, 17, was initially scheduled for July 3rd, but the case was continued. This is the second time the hearing has been rescheduled. Ellis has been charged with forcible sodomy after he and another student allegedly sexually assaulted a classmate at the school last year. His hearing will get underway at 2:30 p.m.
