District Judge Kim Schroeder postponed the arraignments for a father and son accused of allegedly beating a man on March 29.

A continuance was granted Friday for both Eliseo Avila Sr., 46, and Alexander Avila-Ortiz, 20, a ruling that came after defense attorneys had filed an appeal of a preliminary hearing that took place in August.

Schroeder said Friday that while the appeal has been filed, neither Paul Kitzke, the attorney for Avila-Ortiz, nor Clint Floyd, Avila’s attorney, had received transcripts of the prelim to review in order to make arguments during the arraignments. Kitzke was present in Seward County District Court Friday, while Floyd was absent.

The arraignment for the two suspects is now scheduled to take place at 10 a.m. on Oct. 15.

Avila and Avila-Ortiz were arrested March 29 for allegedly beating Anthony Martinez, 20, during an altercation in the 100 block of West Hickory in Liberal.
