— Steamboat Springs homeowner and real estate developer Brooks Kellogg is scheduled for a detention hearing and preliminary hearing at 1:30 p.m. today in U.S. District Court in Denver. Kellogg was arrested Oct. 19 at Denver International Airport on allegations that he tried to pay for the murder of a Florida man who settled for $2.5 million in a lawsuit against business entities owned by Kellogg and a Steamboat business partner.

U.S. Attorney’s Office spokesman Jeff Dorschner said today’s hearings, if not postponed, or continued, would determine whether there is probable cause for the charge. The hearings also would determine whether Kellogg should be released on bail and, if so, the amount of that bail. From there, prosecutors would have 30 days to indict Kellogg by grand jury to move the case forward.
