      The suspect in a central Missouri triple homicide is scheduled to undergo a psychological exam Friday as preparations continue for his trial in September.

      Twenty-six-year-old Joshua Maylee of Holts Summit is charged with three counts of first-degree murder. He's accused of killing a Holts Summit couple and a Callaway County man, and trying to kill the man's wife in 2010.

      His trial is scheduled to start Sept. 10 on a change of venue in Boone County.

      The Columbia Daily Tribune reports a judge ruled on several motions in the case Monday.

      In response to one motion, the judge agreed to suppress statements Maylee made to Callaway County Sheriff Dennis Crane while he was being held at the county jail soon after his arrest.
