NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (AP) - A man who’s accused of killing seven people in Connecticut more than a decade ago is expected to waive his right to a hearing where prosecutors would have to show they have enough evidence to go to trial.

William Devin Howell is scheduled to waive a probable cause hearing Monday before a New Britain Superior Court judge via videoconference. The hearing was scheduled for Wednesday.

Howell, a Hampton, Virginia, native, is serving prison time for one slaying and has pleaded not guilty to the other six. All seven victims were killed in 2003 and later found buried in New Britain.

One of Howell’s former cellmates, Jonathan Mills, who is serving life in prison for murdering four people, was to be the key witness against Howell at the hearing.
