One of three men accused of killing Maxine Stalnaker and Mary Friend was in court Monday, Sept. 30.

Joseph Metz appeared before Special Magistrate Tammy Marple in Weston for a preliminary hearing.

Metz's attorneys had asked to subpoena documents and statements from seven people, including Prosecutor Mike Smith.

Magistrate Marple canceled the subpoenas, saying it was too early for discovery of evidence.

Marple then continued the case until Friday.
