COOLBAUGH TWP., Pa. -

A Monroe County barber accused of killing another barber last week is heading to trial.

A preliminary hearing was held Wednesday for Shawn Develvet.

Police say he got into a fight with 34-year old Quentin Thomas at Stylez Barber Shop on Route 196 in Coolbaugh Township on May 9. Both worked at the shop.

Thomas was taken to the hospital where he died a short time later.

 Develvet cried during Wednesday's hearing and his lawyer says he shouldn't be charged with homicide because there was no premeditation or intent.

Develvet is also charged with aggravated assault, tampering with evidence and false reports to law enforcement.
