Prelim begins for Hoopa murder

☛ TS Prelim begins for Hoopa murder
More than two years after the body of 26-year-old Jason Dee McElroy was uncovered in a shallow grave near Weitchpec, Carlyle Whiteotter Blake -- a Hoopa man charged with McElroy's murder -- entered a Humboldt County courtroom Tuesday for the first day of his preliminary hearing.

The Humboldt County District Attorney's Office brought in two Humboldt sheriff's investigators to lay out the case's circumstantial evidence in an effort to convince Judge Michael Brown the case is strong enough for Blake to stand trial.
