A preliminary hearing for two men accused of first-degree murder in connection with the death of Salina resident Kristin Tyler has been scheduled for November.

Dane Deweese, 33, of Abilene, was arrested Wednesday and Joel Heil, 25, of Salina, who has been in custody since May 8, appeared in Saline County District Court Friday morning. At that time, a preliminary hearing for both men was scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Nov. 21.

Judge Patrick Thompson also denied a request to reduce Deweese’s bond from $1 million.
