FARGO, ND —┬áThe preliminary hearing for a Moorhead man charged with the murder of a man outside of a McDonald’s has been pushed back.

Miguel Cooley made a brief appearance in Cass County District Court Wednesday morning.

His attorney, Steven Mottinger, asked for more time to review evidence.

The judge granted his request but a new hearing date has yet to be set.

Cooley is accused of shooting and killing 20-year-old Gabriel Perez outside of McDonald’s on Main Avenue in Fargo in September.

A possible relationship between Perez and Cooley’s wife may have been a factor in the shooting.
