Accused killer of three-year-old Jayda Kyle to waive preliminary hearing

Jaden Valen, 22, Carl Junction, the man accused of second degree murder and felony child abuse in connection with the December 1 death of three-year-old Jayda Kyle, is expected to waive his preliminary hearing during a 10 a.m. Thursday hearing before Judge Joseph Hensley in Jasper County Circuit Court.

The waiver is mentioned in online Circuit Court records.

That action means Valen will be bound over for trial.

Though it is not specified in online Circuit Court records, it is possible Hensley will rule on attorney Tracey Martin's motion that bond for Valen be set at $250,000.

Valen has been held without bond in the Jasper County Jail since December 6.
