A 35-year-old Fairfield man will face a November preliminary hearing in Solano County Superior Court for the July 2021 slaying of his girlfriend. Hugo Ulises Avelino-Medina appeared Sept. 9 in Department 9 to learn of his hearing date, and Judge Carlos R. Gutierrez set it for 1:30 p.m. Nov. 28 and again at 1:30 p.m. Nov. 29 in the Justice Center in Fairfield, court records show. The judge also set a readiness conference for 8:30 a.m. Nov. 1, also in Department 9.
