SOUTH HAVEN — A South Haven man accused of killing his wife in August is now headed for an appearance in 36th Circuit Court next month.

Seventh District Court Judge Art Clarke ruled during a preliminary exam on Thursday that there is enough probable cause to send 36-year-old Randy Halstead Jr. to the higher court for the felony charge of open murder in the death of Halstead’s wife, Kimberly Halstead. Randy Halstead will appear in circuit court Nov. 16 for the arraignment.
