A pretrial conference for a Johnson County resident is set for Monday afternoon in Johnson County. Online court documents indicate Christopher Hendren, 20, of Centerview, faces charges of first degree murder, armed criminal action, and first degree burglary.
The charges were filed in January of 2012. Hendren was arraigned on those charges in April of that year and entered a plea of not guilty. The case was reviewed several times and a motion hearing was scheduled for November of 2012. A motion to remand the defendant to juvenile court for further proceedings was filed in December. That motion was denied and a hearing was scheduled for January of 2013.
Further continuances and case reviews led to a pretrial conference scheduled for Monday afternoon at 3 p.m. in Johnson County Circuit court.
A jury trial has been scheduled to begin April 27th.
