Preliminary Hearing For Accused Killer James Phelps Postponed Until July

There’s been another postponement in the preliminary hearing for accused killer James Phelps

Phelps and Timothy Norton are charged with first degree murder, kidnapping and abandonment of a corpse in the death of Cassidy Rainwater in Dallas County..

The preliminary hearing is not set for July 14th.

Phelps appeared in court Friday for a motion hearing, and in that hearing, a judge approved a request for a continuance.

Dallas County Sheriff Scott Rice, in an interview with KY3 back in February, confirmed Rainwater’s flesh was found in a freezer, with the rest of her remains found scattered on a nearby property belonging to Bill Rainwater, Cassidy’s grandfather.
