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.
Vidinhar is accused of stabbing multiple times his two younger brothers, 4 and 10, to death. The younger boys were found in the main parts of their home in West Point on May 22.
Vidinhar was found several hours later by Layton police walking down a street. He was taken into custody and booked in Farmington Youth Center on May 23.
The Davis County Attorney’s Office filed formal charges on July 1, along with a motion asking the judge to certify the teenager as an adult.
