Exclusive Video: Anthony Bennett in Court

Posted: Updated:

(09/20/12) - Anthony Bennett appeared in court Thursday, and our ABC12 camera was there.

He's the man investigators believe murdered a 4-year-old boy on an Indian reservation.

But Bennett was not in federal court on the Carnel Chamberlain assault case. He was in Bay County District Court because police say he has been causing trouble in the Bay County jail.

Anthony Bennett is a federal inmate, but he's being held in the Bay County Jail.

Last month, he got into a pretty good fight in the jail.

Thursday, his preliminary hearing in the case was scheduled.

Bennett is charged with five criminal counts, two felonies for assaulting corrections officers, two charges of resisting an officer, and a malicious destruction of a building.

He waived his right to a preliminary hearing and the case will now move to circuit court.

Now Bennett is still awaiting trial on the federal assault charge concerning Carnel Chamberlain. That's the son of Bennett's girlfriend.

The little boy's burned remains were found under his mother's porch on the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Reservation in June.

We have been told the effort to bring a murder charge against Bennett in that case is progressing.

Bennett continues to be held in the Bay County Jail.
