BURLEY, Idaho (AP) - A preliminary hearing for a registered sex offender charged with murder in his wife’s death has been postponed.

The Times-News reports (https://bit.ly/1KGUeIj ) that 34-year-old Ronnie Kincaid Jr., of Burley, was scheduled to appear in court Friday, but the hearing has been pushed back to Oct. 16. It will take place in Cassia County Magistrate Court.

Police found Melissia Kincaid dead Sept. 6 in the couple’s home. An autopsy determined that the woman had bled to death from vaginal and anal trauma.

Kincaid has been held on $5 million bond.

Kincaid’s attorney had argued that the bond was too high, but prosecutors cited the gruesome nature of the crime and Kincaid’s failure to register as a sex offender.



He was convicted of rape in Oregon in 2001.
