LONE GROVE, OK -- A Lone Grove man charged with murder in the death of a toddler says he now wants a preliminary hearing.

Conan Collins, 35 wants the hearing in both of his cases.

He is also charged with child neglect.

That hearing is scheduled to happen in Carter County on October seventh.

Collins and his wife were arrested back in May in connection to the death of Hoss Gonzales.

Lone Grove police Chief Robert Oldham says Conan was babysitting the 22 month old.

Police say he drove the toddler to a convenience store looking for help from his wife Brittney.

The child was unresponsive when officers arrived.

Chief Oldham says after CPR was performed the child was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Conan's wife Brittney is scheduled to be back in court on October 27th for a continuance conference.
