OAKLAND (KRON) – A preliminary hearing was postponed Monday for the two men charged in the Ghost Ship warehouse fire that killed 36 people a year ago.
The hearing for Derick Almena and Max Harris was rescheduled for Wednesday.
An Alameda County Superior Court judge will hear the prosecution’s evidence against Almena and Harris, before deciding whether they should stand trial.
Almena rented the warehouse in 2013 and lived there with his family. Harris also lived in the building and helped Almena book musical acts and sublet the space to artists looking for affordable housing.
Almena and Harris were each charged with 36 counts of involuntary manslaughter for the Dec. 2, 2016, fire. In September, Almena and Harris pleaded not guilty. Each face 60 years in prison if convicted.
