A man charged in connection with the murder of a transgender woman in Logan had his preliminary hearing continued.

Pedro Redding, 24, was scheduled to have a preliminary hearing Oct. 28 to determine if his case will move to trial. It was rescheduled for 9 a.m. Nov. 25 in room 306 of the Criminal Justice Center, 1301 Filbert St.

Redding, of the 4500 block of North 13th Street, was denied bail and is being held at the Philadelphia Detention Center. He faces charges of murder, conspiracy and weapons charges.

Redding was arrested in connection with the Oct. 6 fatal shooting of Kiesha Jenkins at 13th and Wingohocking streets. Jenkins, 22, was assaulted by several men around 2:30 a.m. and shot twice in the back.

Police said they believe the motive was robbery and that Jenkins was not targeted for being transgender. Police do not believe Redding was the shooter.

No further arrests have been made, but police said they are searching for other suspects.
