The case of a St. Peter man charged with murder is set for a hearing today in Fayette County Court. 24-year old Alexander R. Beccue of St. Peter is scheduled for a pre-trial hearing this afternoon at 1pm. The appearance is the first for Beccue in about a month and a half after his scheduled pre-trial hearing in March was rest. A jury trial date was reset during that hearing, however, as trial is now scheduled for August 20. Beccue is charged with 2 counts of First Degree Murder as information states that Beccue allegedly “with the intent to kill Joshua K. Smith, shot Joshua K. Smith in the head” with what information from an unlawful possession charge against Beccue states was allegedly a .38 revolver handgun. Beccue remains in the Fayette County jail on $1 million bond.
