(EL DORADO, Kan.) -

An Augusta woman charged with first-degree murder after a body was found in her backyard faced a judge in Butler County court Thursday.

Judge Jan Satterfield wanted to make sure Susan May's attorney, James Watts had enough time to go through the case before the preliminary hearing Nov. 27.

The hearing may last all day.

The judge scheduled a special hearing in a couple weeks to talk about some subpoenas involving medical history. That meeting will not be open to the public.

May is charged with first-degree murder in connection to Richard Hrejsa's death. Authorities said the two were siblings.

His body was found behind her Augusta home Oct. 13, almost a month after police believe he was shot and killed.
