Preliminary exam scheduled for Furlong

Felony charges against a 65-year-old man charged with criminal restraint of a White Pigeon girl was set for preliminary examination last week in St. Joseph County District Court.
A judge will hear preliminary testimony Oct. 6 to determine if there is enough evidence to bind the case to circuit court for trial for Daniel Furlong on allegations that he attempted to use electrical cords to restrain a 10-year-old girl and that he threatened her with a knife.
DNA collected from Furlong in that case led to his subsequent arrest in the unsolved murder of 11-year-old Jodi Parrack in November 2007.
A preliminary examination on the murder charge is scheduled for Oct. 14, and court officials said they expect that to be an all-day hearing.
Furlong did not appear in court last week and remains in the St. Joseph County jail, where he has been held without bond since his murder arraignment.
