HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

An attorney for the Huntsville man accused of killing his wife and child requested the court set a date for a preliminary hearing.

Stephen Marc Stone is charged with two counts of capital murder.

Huntsville Police Investigators say Stone strangled Krista Stone and strangled and drowned 7-year-old Zachary Stone.

Officers responded to a home on Chicamauga Trail Sunday morning, on February 24 after being called out for a welfare check.  When they arrived, they found the bodies.

Stone is in the Huntsville-Madison County Metro Jail without bond. A judge set the preliminary hearing for May 1. During that hearing the judge will determine if there is enough evidence to send the case to a grand jury.
