Today's hearing for six Columbus teenagers accused of murder was postponed until Friday at 8 a.m. in Columbus Recorder's Court.
Senior Recorder's Court Judge Michael Cielinski rescheduled the hearing after a brief discussion with attorneys representing the six accused teens.
Facing murder charges in the death of 28-year-old Aubrey Hector, whose burned body was found by firemen extinguishing a burning vehicle last Friday in Flat Rock Park, are James Stewart, 18, of 5248 Spinnaker Court; Robert Hancock, 17, of 5317 Old Dominion Road; Frank Ravenel, 18, of 6 Trestlewood Court, Apt. 2; Vincent Clegg, 19, of 5405 Old Dominion Road; Kyle Klamer, 19, of 5202 Cunningham Drive; and Michael Jarvis, 18, of 6309 Rockefeller Drive.
Police investigators allege Hector's death was the result of a plot to rob the man of money and marijuana. Hector was shot elsewhere, then his car was driven to Flat Rock Park and set afire, police said.
Never miss a local story.
In addition to the murder charge, the teenagers face charges of first-degree arson, armed robbery and possession of a firearm during commission of a crime.
The hearing on the charges has been rescheduled for 8 a.m. Friday in Recorder's Court.
