COLUMBIA – Charvez Markel Smith, 21, was granted a continuance at a preliminary hearing Tuesday afternoon.

Smith then ran to a nearby house where the owner let him inside until police arrived, the Missourian report stated.
Another hearing date has not been set. Smith remains in the Boone County Jail.
