A preliminary hearing for Boyd Turtle, 54, was delayed on Friday after a witness failed to appear. Turtle was ordered to return to East Fork Justice Court on Wednesday.
Prosecutors are required to provide sufficient evidence that a crime was committed and Turtle could have been involved. Should the justice of the peace determine there is sufficient evidence, Turtle would be bound over to district court.
Turtle is accused of holding a knife on a resident at the home during a June 9 incident when a woman, Antoinette Auguilar-Turtle, 55, arrived at the home on Limestone Road claiming she was owed money.
She is accused of pulling a pistol on one of the residents.
Two other Carson residents also were arrested in connection with the incident.

Kyle Earl Dean, 26, was taken into custody on May 31 after a deputy spotted him at the intersection of Mica and Haystack Drives in Indian Hills apparently attaching a license plate to a Toyota Camry.

When asked for identification, Dean went rummaging around in the vehicle looking for some. A search of the vehicle turned up a couple of devices that appeared to be used to smoke drugs and 9.6 grams of hash oil, along with alleged burglary tools.
He is scheduled to appear in Douglas County District Court on July 9 with attorney Kristine Brown.
