The preliminary hearing is now scheduled for February 16 & 17 at 9 a.m.
Driver is charged with kidnapping, sexual assault, murder and a variety of related charges stemming from the kidnapping of Naomi Irion from the Walmart parking lot last March. Her body was found buried in a remote area of Churchill County.
