The preliminary hearing for the 45-year-old man accused of murdering his mother about 10 days ago in West Seneca was adjourned today until June 7, but it’s unclear whether that hearing will be held.

With all parties present, the hearing for Primitivo Cruz was adjourned in front of West Seneca Town Justice Jeffrey M. Harrington.

Law-enforcement officials have speculated that an indictment could be obtained from an Erie County grand jury. That action would move the case into Erie County Court.

Cruz was charged with second-degree murder after he turned himself in to West Seneca police on May 7. He’s accused of killing his 77-year-old mother, Carol Quinn, the previous weekend.
