A preliminary hearing will be held Sept. 22 in Malad for a man charged with a freeway rest stop murder of another man last year.

James Louis Holland was earlier convicted of a Utah slaying.Holland, 48, is charged with the July 4, 1987, slaying of Karl Behm, 24. He is being held at American Falls pending the court hearing, because it is the closest approved jail facility that has room for a prisoner.

Holland was arraigned Monday.

Behm, a Ohio resident, was shot twice and left at the isolated Juniper rest stop. His body was found later by a trucker.

Local police said they had no leads until nine days later when Holland was arrested in Florida and made a statement about the Behm slaying.

Holland, Orlando, Fla., is sentenced to die in Utah on his guilty plea to the shooting death of a 70-year-old Florida man.

The body of Samuel Frank Patt, 70, Winter Haven, Fla., was found in July 1986 at the Echo Reservoir rest stop on I-84.
