The preliminary hearing for accused arsonist Keith McBride, originally scheduled for this morning in U. S. District Court in Springfield, has been rescheduled for 11 a.m. Wednesday, April 27, according to court records.
The change in schedule came after a two-minute hearing in which McBride was given more time to hire a lawyer. McBride is charged with the burning of his business Coin-Op in Webb City April 15. He allegedly burned his house the same day. More information about the case can be found in the April 20 and April 21 Turner Reports.
