An Aug. 15 preliminary hearing has been scheduled for an Oklahoma City man charged with trying to hire a co-worker to kill his pregnant girlfriend.

The hearing for 30-year-old Preston Rhoads is to determine whether there is enough evidence to try Rhoads on two counts of solicitation to commit murder and two counts of attempting to kill another person.
