A preliminary hearing for a man accused of kidnapping and robbery ended abruptly Thursday afternoon when the judge ordered a witness be tested for drugs. The result might mean a do-over for two hearings.
The alleged victim in the March 29 incident testified in separate preliminary hearings in Ellis County District Court for David and Hollie Hunter, Hutchinson.
They are accused of robbing a 26-year-old Hays man of cash, cellphones and other items after David Hunter allegedly threatened the man with a hatchet. Both are in custody in the Ellis County Jail.
