      Seth Techel


      Seth Techel was scheduled for a preliminary hearing at the Wapello County Courthouse Wednesday morning, however, his lawyer waived the hearing.


      Techel

      is charged with

      first-degree murder

      in the death of his wife

      , Lisa Techel, and nonconsensual termination of a pregnancy in the death of her unborn child. Techel

      pleaded not guilty

      to the charges last week.



      Techel's case will now head to District Court, where they will set a date for indictment. A representative at the courthouse told KTVO that the indictment must take place within 45 days of arrest.


      Techel is still being held in the Monroe County Jail.
