Sacramento resident Raymond Jacquett, 26, was arrested on Sept. 26 on charges of murder and conspiracy to commit murder.

Thursday, after a preliminary hearing, Judge Michael J. Mulvihill ruled there was sufficient evidence to bind Jacquett over for trial on a murder charge as well as the special circumstances of murder by lying in wait, and murder for financial gain.

Lee, Stewart, and Costello are due in court for a preliminary hearing on March 21, 2019. The San Joaquin County District Attorney said Jacquett's hearing was heard this week because he demanded his statutory "speedy trial" right to a preliminary hearing.
