The preliminary hearing for a Crane man charged with felony assault and armed criminal action has been rescheduled for December 18th.

In September, Phillip Campbell told authorities that Marcus "Marc" Reel, 40, allegedly tried to shoot him and when the pistol misfired he pulled a hunting knife and tried to stab him in the neck during the attack. One of Campbell's fingers was nearly severed when he tried to protect his neck, according to court documents.

Campbell says he and Reel have had a long running feud and he believes he was assaulted because of it.

Reel remains jailed on one million dollars bond.
