One of the men who was facing charges in the disappearance of two Lewis County women had a preliminary hearing Friday for a new charge in connection to that case. The defense attorney decided to continue the hearing because they needed more time, apparently since David Hughes suffered from medical problems.

Deputies say last week, Hughes turned himself in and is charged with conspiracy to rob Mary Friend and Maxine Stalnaker. In September, Hughes and the two other men, Joseph Metz and Steven Freeman were charged with murder, robbery, and kidnapping in the 1999 disappearances of the two women. Those charges were dropped last month. As of right now, the other two men aren't facing new charges, but the investigation is still on-going.

Hughes was released on bond and is set to appear in court at the end of January.
