CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – The man suspected of killing 22 year old Jasmine Pace had his first preliminary hearing today.

22 year old Jason Chen is charged with murder.

According to investigators, Chen had a relationship with Pace.

Her remains were recovered last Thursday off of Suck Creek Road.

Jasmine Pace was last seen on November 22nd.

Chen was arrested last week just outside of Nashville.

Today’s preliminary hearing was very brief.

Testimony should begin later this week.

Both the prosecution and defense will have witnesses take the stand.

That’s also when bond could be set for Chen.

The main portion of the trial likely won’t begin until next year.
