Cleota Henderson waived preliminary hearings

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) – Cleota Henderson, the man accused of killing Eliza Fletcher, waived a preliminary hearing Wednesday.

The Shelby County District Attorney’s Office says the case will now go back to a grand jury. If Henderson is charged, the case will then be transferred to criminal court.

Henderson is being held without bond. He still has a 2021 rape hearing scheduled for Nov. 4.

Henderson is charged with first-degree murder, tampering with evidence, identity theft and property theft in connection with Fletcher’s murder.

He previously served 20 years in prison for kidnapping a lawyer at gunpoint.
