A preliminary hearing for the Raleigh man accused of killing Kathy Taft has been cancelled.
Jason Williford had been scheduled for a preliminary hearing Monday in Wake County. The 30-year-old Raleigh man is charged with killing the state school board member from Greenville.
The 62-year-old Taft was killed in early March while staying at a friend's home after undergoing cosmetic surgery.
Court officials say Monday's hearing was cancelled because Williford was indicted last week for Taft's murder and rape. A preliminary hearing verifies there is enough evidence for a case to go before a grand jury, but since Williford has already been indicted there is no need for the hearing.
He remains in jail without bond.
