One of the suspects accused in the kidnapping and beating of a man is expected in court Monday, just days before his trial. 

Chase Smotherman, Mitchell Overhand and Mariah Ferry were arrested in August and accused of kidnapping a man and forcing him to look at a picture of his mutilated and dead friend, John Soyka.

Smotherman’s kidnapping trial is set to begin next Monday, while his murder trial is set for July.

His defense is asking a judge to consider several motions, including suppressing evidence related to the case.

The hearing begins Monday afternoon.
