ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A Smithville man was back in court Tuesday for a committal hearing.

43 year-old Timothy Danue French is accused of stabbing 82 year-old A.J. Mosley in his home on January 15th, 2008.

His attorney, however, was not present at the hearing, bringing the course of proceedings to a halt.

Prosecutors must present evidence to a judge before an indictment can be handed down by a Grand Jury.

"From our prospective, they're important because they establish, it's the first step in establishing a person's guilt," said Chief Asst. District Attorney Lewis Lamb. "It establishes that we have probable cause to continue this from this stage to the grand jury stage to the trial stage."

GBI agents say French had been a person of interest in the case for a long time, but they finally got physical evidence for an arrest.

The committal hearing has been tentatively rescheduled for March 18th.

WALB was not able to contact French's attorney Tuesday.
