The man accused of a stabbing murder at Red Hawk Casino momentarily appeared in court to receive a new hearing date.

Further investigation was needed before a preliminary hearing on the Estephen Juarez case could be held, defense attorney Clifford Safranski told El Dorado County Superior Court Judge Douglas C. Phimister. Safranski and deputy district attorney Joe Alexander agreed to a pre-preliminary hearing set for April 29 at 8 a.m.

Juarez, 33, was arrested in connection with the death of Gene Mcarn, 19, of Rescue, who died of stab wounds on Nov. 21 after an alleged encounter with Juarez at Red Hawk Casino in Shingle Springs. Juarez is being held in the county jail on two counts of violation of probation and one count of murder with a $70,000 bail hold.
