A 20-year-old alleged gang member accused of first-degree murder was granted a continuance on an arraignment hearing Friday in Ford County District Court.

William "Trey" Edwards III told Judge Leigh Hood that, in the times since his last appearance April 5, he has sent letters out to several defense attorneys asking for representation. Edwards is currently represented by defense attorney Lori Jensen. The reasoning behinds Edwards' desire for a new attorney was not immediately clear.

Edwards is being held on $500,000 bond for his alleged role in the Aug. 5 murder of 24-year-old Miguel Tol-Juarez. The murder is alleged to have been gang-related. He is also charged with aggravated robbery and two counts of aggravated battery.

The prosecuting attorney for the State, Scott James, said he was not opposed to a continuance of the arraignment and a subsequent continuance of a jury trial which was scheduled for June 24-28.

The hearing concluded with an agreement by all parties to schedule an arraignment in two to three weeks and move forward from there.

Two additional suspects in Tol-Juarez's death, 21-year-old Lisa Worthey, and 28-year-old Jesus Rivas, are reportedly undergoing plea negotiations. Worthey is facing charges of first-degree murder and interfering with a law enforcement. She is currently out on bond. Rivas has been charged with one count of first-degree murder in the commission of a felony, two counts of aggravated battery and two counts of attempted aggravated robbery but is likely to only face the aggravated robbery charge, according to court records. His bond is set at $500,000. Police are still looking for a fourth suspect, 16-year-old Miguel Antonio Solis. Solis is wanted for first degree murder, aggravated battery, attempted aggravated robbery and criminal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. According to testimony in Edwards' hearing, Solis is alleged to have shot Tol-Juarez.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Solis is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at (620) 227-STOP or toll free at (877) 424-4414. Calls can also be made to the DCPD at (620) 225-8128. To text a confidential tip to the DCPD, text DCPD and your tip to 847411 (TIP411).
