Eugene K. Crider will stand trial for Anderson's murder

A man charged with first-degree murder in Stone County has waived his preliminary hearing that was scheduled for tomorrow (06-22-12) and will stand trial for his alleged part in the murder of Carl Glenn Anderson.

Carl Anderson was missing for about a month before his remains were found

Crider, Cheryl Crawford and Teri Dean-Morrison were charged after the remains of Anderson were found in a pond on property owned by a former boyfriend of Dean-Morrison's.

The trio are also facing charges of  armed criminal action, three counts of tampering with physical evidence and hindering prosecution.  Dean-Morrison and Crider have also been charged with abandonment of a corpse; Crawford was additionally charged with endangering the welfare of a child.

Anderson was last known to be at a gathering at Dean-Morrison's home at 263 Akita Run near Hootentown in late February.

Court documents say carpet, windows, doors and other items were replaced in Dean-Morrison's home within 24 hours of Anderson's disappearance.

Crawford and Dean-Morrison's preliminary hearings are still scheduled to be heard tomorrow morning in Galena, according to prosecutor Matt Selby.  Selby says he anticipates the hearing to take the better part of the day.

Crider is scheduled to be arraigned in circuit court on July 2nd.
