Kehoe hearing likely to be canceled

INDEPENDENCE, Iowa (AP) -- Prosecutors say a preliminary hearing for a Coralville woman accused of killing one son and injuring another may be canceled.

Michelle Kehoe is charged with first-degree murder, attempted murder and child endangerment causing serious injury.

She is accused of killing her 2-year-old son, Seth, and injuring her 7-year-old son, Sean, on Oct. 26 in a remote area near Littleton in northeast Iowa.

Kehoe was arrested Saturday afternoon and was being held at the Buchanan County Jail in lieu of $2.25 million bond.

County Attorney Allan Vander Hart says the hearing, scheduled for Tuesday, will be canceled if he presents written trial information for the judge. Such information outlines state's evidence, including a list of potential witnesses and a summary of testimony.

Vander Hart says he plans on filing the trial information soon.
