The Eureka man accused of killing a man in McKinleyville in June appeared in court for a disposition reset hearing on Wednesday.

Twenty-one-year-old Michael Youravish is accused of murdering 33-year-old Forrest Croft Lovejoy. Lovejoy’s body was found with multiple stab wounds in the Baldy area near C Avenue in McKinleyville.  Youravish has already pleaded not guilty to the charges. His defense attorney told the court they were not ready for a trial date to be set. The court then scheduled Youravish to appear for another disposition reset hearing on August 27th.
