OAK HILL (WVVA) - A murder suspect in Fayette County has waived the time period for a preliminary hearing.

Police say 63-year-old William Cody has admitted to killing his on again, off again girlfriend Santanea Byers.  He was originally scheduled to have his preliminary hearing in Tuesday morning.

Byers went missing two weeks ago. During his second interview last week, Cody allegedly told investigators he killed Byers, and hid the body in an outbuilding on Blaketown Road.

The hearing has not been rescheduled.
