Twin Falls man charged with murder wants preliminary hearing

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) - A 23-year-old Twin Falls man charged with first-degree murder says he didn't receive adequate legal advice before waiving his right to a preliminary hearing.

Bradly Frank James filed an affidavit in 5th District Court on Wednesday seeking to set aside the waiver of the preliminary hearing.

James on Feb. 4 waived the hearing and was bound over to district court where he pleaded not guilty to the Dec. 12 fatal shooting and stabbing of 58-year-old Larry Ray Miller.

The Times-News reports that James changed attorneys on March 17, and the next day filed a motion seeking to set aside the waiver.

A trial date has been set for July 11. James is being held in the Twin Falls County Jail without bond.
