Man accused of killing wife, child requests hearing | News
HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF)- An attorney for the Huntsville man accused of killing his wife and child requested the court set a date for a preliminary hearing.
Stephen Marc Stone is charged with two counts of capital murder.
Huntsville Police Investigators say Stone strangled Krista Stone and strangled and drowned 7-year-old Zachary Stone.
Officers responded to a home on Chicamauga Trail Sunday morning, on February 24 after being called out for a welfare check. When they arrived, they found the bodies.
Stone is in the Huntsville-Madison County Metro Jail without bond. A judge set the preliminary hearing for May 1. During that hearing the judge will determine if there is enough evidence to send the case to a grand jury.
