Jeff Heckman

Jacob Norris

The trial of three area residents charged in a string of bank robberies has been put off until March.

A continuance was granted for Jeffrey Heckman, 25, and Jacob Norris, 23, both of Macon, as well as Alexia Baker, 23, of Shelbyville.  The group is accused of bank heists in Hamilton, Brookfield, Blythedale, Columbia, and Temple, Texas.

The trio was captured in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico in early September.

They are scheduled to stand trial on Mar. 5 in Waco, Texas. The Missouri cases are currently on hold.
