The preliminary hearing for a 14-year-old Jenks boy who is charged with murder has been pushed back a month.
The hearing for Joshua Scott Mooney was scheduled for Thursday. That date was stricken from the docket, and the hearing is now set for March 13.
Mooney, who turns 15 in April, was charged as an adult in Tulsa County District Court on Jan. 3 with first-degree murder and second-degree burglary.
Mooney, an eighth-grader at Jenks Middle School, was arrested and jailed Dec. 18 in connection with the fatal shooting of Mary Escue, 47, of Reno, Nev. Mooney is being held without bail.
Escue was shot after interrupting a burglary at her parents’ home in Jenks on Dec. 17, according to reports.
Mooney’s lawyer has applied to have the case transferred to Tulsa County District Court’s Juvenile Bureau.
