Hearing Delayed for Man Who Threatened to "Kill as Many People as Possible"

The evidence hearing -- for a Salt Lake man, accused of making terrorist threats -- was delayed Thursday.

Prosecutors say Jack Stiles, 42, told a hospital crisis worker he was planning to commit mass shootings at City Creek Center and a Sugar House movie theater.

He's charged with one count of second-degree felony threat of terrorism, punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

This week Stiles' attorney asked to delay the preliminary hearing, where a judge will hear evidence and decide if there is probable cause for a trial.

A new hearing was set for Feb. 6.

Stiles is being held at the Salt Lake County jail on a $1-million bond.
