to August 7, related to problems over discovery
Four criminal cases, according to the docket, were set to go to trial Tuesday in Calhoun Circuit Court before Judge Thomas Evans III, but none of them went to trial with 27 jurors dismissed.
Two of the cases were continued because of presentment problems, and two other cases had been dismissed for reasons not defined during the hearing, but could be refiled later.
The case against Charles Ray Metz, 32, of Big Bend, was continued to June 5, related to a State Police witness breaking down in his vehicle, although the officer did arrive a short time later.
Metz's attorney Ira Haught requested the continuance, with Prosecutor Rocky Holmes agreeing and Judge Evans approving.
Metz is facing charges related to wanton endangerment involving a firearm (one count), conspiracy to commit a felony (one count) and destruction of property (one count).
The charges are related to a 2010 incident on Nobe Road that allegedly involved the throwing of an inactive hand grenade, gunfire, and the subsequent arson of a house.
