HURRICANE, Utah (AP) -- A motion hearing scheduled for today is the final scheduled hearing in the state's case against polygamist leader Warren Jeffs until a jury trial begins in September.

The hearing scheduled in 5th District Court is meant to determine if the testimony of prosecution witnesses Jethro Barlow and Richard Holm will be allowed at trial.

Holm and Barlow are both former members of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Jeffs is the leader of the church and is facing two charges of rape as an accomplice for his alleged role in arranging the marriage between a 14-year-old girl and her 19-year-old cousin.
