At a March 20 hearing, Judge Morris Jacobson of the Alameda County Superior Court ordered a witness to appear for the May 18 preliminary hearing of Berkeley resident Andrew Hoeft-Edenfield. 

Hoeft-Edenfield was charged by the district attorney’s office for murdering UC Berkeley engineering student, Chris Wootton, outside an university sorority house last May. 

Hoeft-Edenfield’s bail had been raised from $2 to $2.5 million by the judge at an earlier hearing. 

The preliminary hearing will take place at the Rene C. Davidson Courthouse in Oakland at 2 p.m.
