Preliminary hearing rescheduled for McKie

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The preliminary hearing for a Whitemarsh Island man arrested for a fatal hit and run earlier this month has been pushed back.

Thirty-eight-year-old Jonathan McKie was arrested for drunk driving, fleeing the scene and vehicular homicide in the death of 18-year-old Craig Loxton.

McKie has been denied bond twice since turning himself into police a day and half after the hit and run.

The hearing was rescheduled for January 12.
