Testimony concluded Thursday in the preliminary hearing for Russell Jones, who is accused of killing his roommate and burying her body in the foothills in 1999. The case will be back in court Monday.
Stanislaus County Superior Court Judge Marie Silveira will decide if Jones should stand trial and whether his confession to police was coerced.
The body of Dena Raley-McCluskey was unearthed in a shallow grave in Tuolumne County on Nov. 1, 2007. She was last seen by her family Oct. 10, 1999.
