Pleasanton resident Cody Hall will appear at the Gale-Schenone Hall of Justice in Pleasanton at 2 p.m. today for a preliminary examination, according to court records.
The 18-year-old Foothill High graduate is charged with second degree murder, along with felony reckless driving in the June 9 collision that killed 58-year-old Dublin resident Diana Hersevoort.
According to documents submitted by police to the court, Hall is believed to have been passing a vehicle on Foothill Road at about 83 miles per hour, when he lost control of his car, striking bicyclists Diana and Joe Hersevoort on June 9.
In November of 2013, Hall entered a plea of 'not guilty' for all charges and was denied bail by Judge Jacob Blea.

Hall has been at the Santa Rita Jail on a "no bail status" since he was taken into custody on Aug. 14 while in appearing in court after prosecutors raised the vehicular manslaughter charge against Hall to murder. Read the full story here.
During his first court appearance on July 29, Hall was ordered by Judge Hugh Walker not to drive during the course of the case.

The Hall case has drawn national attention because his social media posts, along with his driving record, will likely be part of the foundation for the murder case against him.
In a previous Patch article, criminal defense attorney Mary Ann Bird says a guilty conviction for Hall could put the teen in prison until he is in his thirties. If Hall is convicted on the murder charge, Bird says Hall could be sentenced up to 15 years to life in prison.
Hall's father, Aaron Hall, a two-time convicted felon, is facing his own felony charges that resulted from firearms, ammunition and a controlled substance allegedly found during the execution of a search warrant on June 30 relating his son's collision. Read the full story here.
