Preliminary hearing delayed for Rios new attorney

LEWISTON, ID - A man charged with vehicular manslaughter will remain in jail after waiving his right to a speedy preliminary trial.

Kyle Rios,24, of Lewiston is facing charges of vehicular manslaughter, leaving the scene of the crime and driving under the influence, all of which stem from a December car wreck that killed 53-year-old Paul Stuk of Peck, Idaho.

Rios is now represented by William Fitzgerald. Because of this change, Rio's legal team has been granted more time to look over the state's evidence against him.

"Stipulate to a continuance and waive your right to a speedy preliminary hearing," said Nez Perce County Judge, Gaskill.

"Yes your honor," said Rios.

"Based on that we will continue the matter for February 12th at 1:30," said Judge Gaskill.

Rios is being held in the Nez Perce County Jail on $100,000 bail.
