A pre-trial hearing for a man charged with negligent homicide for a boating accident on Candlewood Lake has been continued again.  The case against 67-year old Gary Morrone was in court Friday, but the hearing was continued to October 2nd.  He was also charged with reckless boating following the death of 38-year old Wanda Tirado last June.  She was thrown from a pontoon boat Morrone piloted and was injured by the boat's propellor.  Investigators found inconsistencies in his description of the events that led to Tirado’s death.
