Adam Baker is due in Catawba County court on Monday to face charges of identity theft and obtaining property by false pretenses.
In September, Bakerâ€™s attorney, Mark Killian, announced in court that he will pursue a motion for change of venue due to a large amount of biased media coverage surrounding his clientâ€™s case.
Baker, the father of the 10-year-old girl Zahra who was brutally murdered last year, is also charged with two counts of communicating threats, assault with a deadly weapon and failure to return rental property in Caldwell County.
District Court Judge Burford Cherry agreed to continue Bakerâ€™s case in Caldwell County on Thursday, but reports state that his case could be handed over to a grand jury during the week of Nov. 14.
Adam Baker is the former husband of Elisa Baker, who was sentenced in September to 15-18 years in prison for murdering his disabled daughter Zahra.
