A preliminary hearing has been set for a Syracuse man charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of another Syracuse man.

Seth Farnsworth, 26, is charged with first-degree murder in connection with the May 26 stabbing death of Christopher Barr, 31.

The preliminary hearing is set for Sept. 30.

Farnsworth appeared in Hamilton County court Thursday for a status conference.

Authorities responded to a 911 phone call at 4 a.m. May 26 at Barr’s residence after they were notified of an altercation at the residence involving an edged weapon.
