UPDATE (May 10, 2017 5:40 p.m.): Leslie Chance's pre-preliminary hearing has been pushed to June 5.


Leslie Chance, an elementary school employee accused of shooting and killing her husband, is expected to be in court this morning for a preliminary hearing.

Already twice this year, those hearings have been pushed back.

Chance faces a charge of first degree murder in connection with the shooting death of her husband, Todd.

His body was found in an agriculture field. He had been shot multiple times.

Leslie Chance was originally questioned and even arrested back in 2013 following her husband’s death. But, she was eventually released. She was then arrested again last year.

Chance is scheduled to be in court again today for a preliminary hearing this morning.
