A Holt, Missouri resident is set to appear before the Clinton County Circuit Court Tuesday for a preliminary hearing.

Justin Webb, 34 was charged last year with felony child abuse and second degree murder in the death of his son Lucas Webb, 4. His wife Melissa Webb, 33, is facing the same two counts of murder and abuse. She is scheduled for a jury trial in May.

The four-year old died in early October 2012 of blunt force trauma.

Justin Webb is on the 1:00 P.M. court docket Tuesday.
