SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- A former cadet leader at a Kansas military school is due in court for a hearing on whether there's enough evidence to try him on charges of sexual battery against a younger student.

The preliminary hearing for 18-year-old David James Burke, of McLean, Va., was scheduled Friday in Saline County District Court.

The case stems from incidents alleged to have occurred last October at St. John's Military School in Salina involving another cadet age 16 or older.

Burke is charged with seven counts of aggravated sexual battery and one count of attempted aggravated criminal sodomy. A lawyer for Burke has said his client denies anything happened in the way of a felony.

Court filings showed at least seven witnesses were subpoenaed to testify at the hearing.
