UPDATE: Neither suspect actually appeared in court for their preliminary hearing. But Tim Fletcher’s mother was there. Tuesday morning, the suspects’ attorneys filed for youthful offender status for them. That decision could be made at the next court hearing in October. “It’s just another step that we have to go. It’s a slow process but it sounds like they’re doing the right steps to make sure nothing is reversible,” said Cynthia Fletcher, the victim’s mother.
