Robbery case hearing delayed two weeks

A preliminary hearing for a Muskogee man charged with conjoint robbery has been rescheduled for 10 a.m. Jan. 15, said Assistant District Attorney Tim King.

The preliminary hearing for Deontee Eugene Newton, 20, was scheduled for Thursday, but the judge rescheduled it because one of the state’s two witnesses was unable to attend, King said.

In September, Newton was charged with robbery for allegedly taking Johnathan Fort to an unknown location, pulling out a gun and taking $600. He hit Fort in the head, shot at him and threatened to kill him and his family, court documents state.

A revocation hearing in another case also was rescheduled for Jan. 15. In March 2012, Newton was charged with felony counts of possession of firearm after delinquent adjudication, carrying a firearm while under the influence, and misdemeanor counts of actual physical control of vehicle under the influence and possession of a controlled dangerous substance, court records state.
