NORFOLK, Va. – The man accused in the March 9 shooting death of Yorkville native Kristopher Klubert was scheduled for a preliminary hearing today in Norfolk General District Court in Norfolk, Va.

Austin T. Greening, 22, a native of Wisconsin, is accused of fatally wounding Klubert, according to reports.

Greening has been free on a $25,000 bond since mid-March.
