Hearing for Kenneth Lees II Moved

The preliminary hearing for the man whose father shot and critically wounded a state trooper has been moved to next month.

Kenneth Lees II had been scheduled for a hearing on felony charges of aggravated assault and fleeing or eluding police as well as a misdemeanor count of reckless endangerment and six traffic offenses.

Lees’ father shot state trooper Bradley Wilson in the neck and torso as he was trying to serve a warrant on Lees’ Brockway house to look for evidence of a meth lab on September 26. After the shooting, police were looking for the younger Lees, who eventually took them on a chase that lasted nearly half an hour. Lees’ father shot and killed himself inside the house.

Wilson remains hospitalized in Pittsburgh.

Lees has not been charged with any drug offenses. He is in Jefferson County Jail on $75,000 bail.
