A Guilford man charged with murder in the death of his son appeared in Chenango County Court on Friday for a pre-trial hearing. In March Ernest Franklin II and Heather Franklin were arrested on charges they killed their 16 year old son then started their home on fire to cover it up. A pre-trial hearing date for Heather Franklin hasn’t been set. According to prosecutors the two will be tried separately with those proceedings to be scheduled in 2018.
