An arraignment has been scheduled for a Washington man charged with first degree murder in the death of his roommate 70-year-old Ed Jones.

A preliminary hearing was initially scheduled for 64-year-old Clarence Dean Pedersen on July 20th but deemed not necessary and an arraignment has been scheduled for August 10th at 9 a.m. at the Washington County Courthouse. Pedersen was arrested and charged with first degree murder on July 11th when Jones was found dead in their apartment earlier that day. Pedersen is being held at the Washington County Jail on a $1,000,000 bond.
