Terry Joe Volner is jailed in Wright County

The preliminary hearing for a man charged with murdering a little boy in Wright County last December has been put on hold as attorney's have asked the court for a mental evaluation for the man.

Prosecutors say Terry Joe "T.J." Volner, 23, slit four year-old Dusty Guenther's throat and then threw the little boy's body into a septic lagoon because he was jealous that the boy's mother had started dating someone else.

Earlier this month attorney's for Volner entered a not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect plea for their client.

Online court records say Judge Lynette Veenstra will rule on the motion on March 20th.  Volner's preliminary hearing has been rescheduled for May 29th in Wright County.
