The preliminary hearings for Robert Pape, 28, and Cristin Smith, 27, have been rescheduled for Oct. 24.
At that hearing, the presiding judge will hear a motion from Smith’s attorney to dismiss the charges against him and, if unsuccessful, a motion to reveal the name of a confidential informant working with the Riverside County District Attorney’s office.
Both men have been arrested for the 2006 triple murder of Jon Hayward, Vicki Friedli, and Vicki’s daughter, Becky Friedli in Pinyon Pines. They had been arrested for the murders in March 2014, but nearly seven months later, the DA’s office dismissed all the charges against Pape and Smith. This June, both men were re-arrested for these murders.
