Amid high security similar to past hearings in the case, District Judge Brian Flynn this morning delayed a scheduled preliminary hearing for a woman accused in the stabbing death of a man on Orchard Mesa.

Amy Adamson, 19, is now scheduled for a preliminary hearing Monday afternoon on charges including first-degree murder in the Jan. 16 death of 20-year-old Ramon Sandoval.

Flynn took roughly one minute to continue the case. A large contingent of Sandoval’s family and friends filed out of Flynn’s courtroom afterward.

In a scene nearly identical to Adamson’s two prior district court appearances, some 10 uniformed or plain-clothed Mesa County Sheriff’s deputies sat in on today’s hearing as Flynn admonished patrons to remain seated during Adamson’s brief appearance. Nobody was allowed in or out of the courtroom. Another three deputies milled about the hallways outside Flynn’s courtroom, while as many deputies patrolled the parking lot of the Mesa County Justice Center.

Authorities in January said the increased security resulted from unspecified threats made after Adamson’s arrest.
