HOLLY SPRINGS, Miss. (AP) -- A preliminary hearing Wednesday for three men charged in the Christmas Day shooting death of a 16-year-old Memphis, Tenn., girl has been canceled.
Jimmy Warren, a spokesman for the Marshall County Sheriff's Department, says no new date has been set for the hearing in justice court. Warren says the delay was "due to a death in the court family."
Rico Fleming, 22, and Corey Albright, 31, both of Rossville, Tenn., and a 16-year-old juvenile are each charged with one count of murder and multiple counts of drive-by shooting.
All three are being held without bond.
The drive-by shooting took place shortly before 3 a.m. Christmas Day along U.S. Highway 72 just west of Slayden in Marshall County. Patterson died on the scene. Four others were wounded and one was unhurt.
