FARMINGTON — A preliminary hearing is set for Aza Vidinhar, 15, who charged with two counts of felony murder.

The hearing is set for Aug. 27 in 2nd District Juvenile Court.

He answered, “Yes,” when Judge Janice Frost asked him if he understands the charges.

His attorney, Todd Sessions, asked the judge to wait to deal with the prosecutors’ request to certify him as as adult until after the preliminary hearing. At the preliminary hearing the judge will determine if there is enough evidence for the case to go forward.
