ELKO, Nev. (AP) - A 46-year-old Idaho man accused of murder in Elko County has waived his preliminary hearing and will go to trial in the death of a woman who was decapitated.

Jose de Jesus Segundo-Huizar of Jerome, Idaho has been charged with first-degree murder, kidnapping, child abuse, and concealing or destroying evidence.

The Elko Daily Free Press reports (https://tinyurl.com/jdl2ht2) a trial date has not yet been set in Elko District Court after he waived Thursday’s preliminary hearing in Justice Court.

A hunter found Carmen Magallanes-Sanchez’ body in a shallow grave off the Mountain City Highway about 10 miles north of Elko on Sept. 4 after her boyfriend reported her missing 10 days earlier.

Sheriff’s detectives arrested Segundo-Huizar in October after detectives say he showed them where her head was buried nearby.
