(Provo-AP) -- A 20-year-old Riverton man accused of killing two purported Provo drug dealers in an Orem orchard will not have a preliminary hearing until next year.

A judge yesterday scheduled proceedings for Seth Rollins Broomhead for April seventh and eighth.

Broomhead has been held without bail since he was charged in late October for two counts of capital murder.

The judge said he would review a motion for reduced bail and determine whether to officially appoint public defenders to represent Broomhead at January sixth hearing.

Broomhead was charged in the deaths of 22-year-old Maritza Aguilar and 20-year-old Pablo Montoya.

Prosecutors allege Broomhead met with Aguilar and Montoya behind an Orem greenhouse on June 13th. They say he shot them in the head as he sat behind them in the back seat of Aguilar's car.

The car's console had been rifled and investigators found 18 baggies of cocaine hidden in a secret compartment. The drugs had a street value of more than 20-thousand dollars.
