MONITEAU COUNTY, Mo.— The Moniteau County murder case against Suzanne J. Ponder continues at 9:00 a.m. Tuesday.

A motion hearing takes place just weeks before Ponder’s preliminary hearing continues. In November 2019 the state motioned for continuance without objection then, the court failed to reschedule the hearing. The misstep now puts the extended preliminary hearing on the Feb. 8 docket.
