The preliminary hearing for Charles Raymond Bird originally scheduled for Tuesday morning has been rescheduled to the morning of March 24.

It is common that cases have multiple dates during which the case is reviewed, Bird’s defense attorney Jeffrey Stein said in an email.

Bird pleaded not guilty to charges of felony death threats and denied the hate crime enhancement at his arraignment on Jan. 14. Bird is accused of sending racially charged death threats to SLO Solidarity leader Matt Klepfer through the use of a fake Facebook account.

At Bird’s preliminary hearing in March, the case will be reviewed to determine if there is sufficient evidence to proceed to a trail.
