Hearing date set for suspect in Kersh disappearance

HOMEWOOD, AL (WBRC) - A preliminary hearing has now been set for the man accused of killing a Homewood woman.
Earlier this week, Homewood police charged 27-year-old Joacquas Haywood with capital murder in the death of Nadia Kersh.
Attorneys for Haywood were in court on Thursday morning to set May 27th as a preliminary hearing date.

Attorney Eric Guster says he has a real problem with his client being charged with capital murder when police have do not have Kersh's body or know if she is really dead.

Police say Haywood and Kersh were acquaintances at one time. He remains in the Jefferson County Jail on no bond.
