A very short hearing for an alleged teenage murderer Monday afternoon ended with a new hearing date.
Adam Weiner, counsel for Wesley Ronald Hampshire, 18, requested Judge Douglas C. Phimister to move a pre-preliminary hearing to April 8 at 1 p.m. in Department 7. Deputy district attorney Jamie Verwayen had no objections and the hearing was set.
Hampshire was charged in connection with the stabbing murder of Matthew Martin Steele on Jan. 16. Hampshire remains in custody without bail.
