KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- The man that kalamazoo detectives say conspired with his employer to set fire to a rental home on Kalamazoo’s north side has waived preliminary exam and will proceed to trial.

Elvis Patterson is charged, along with Lois Atkinson of planning to set the home on Park Street on fire earlier this month.

The Preliminary hearing for Atkinson has been delayed a month.

Police were tipped off by the former tenant who claims she was paid to leave the place so they would be free to burn it.
