The case against the man charged with killing his girlfriend and her 7-year-old son is heading to an Erie County grand jury.
Shane Stevenson waived his right to a felony hearing Wednesday morning in Cheektowaga Town Court before Town Justice Dennis Gorski.
The matter will be presented to a grand jury in the next 45 days, said Assistant District Attorney Colleen Curtin Gable, chief of the homicide bureau.

During the brief court appearance, both Stevenson and his attorney John Gilmour told the judge they waived the right to a hearing. Stevenson, who has been charged with two counts of second-degree murder, remained in custody without bail.
Cheektowaga police found the bodies of Raina Voll, 30, and Leo Klinger, 7, Thursday night in the Kingswood Apartments on French Road.
Authorities have declined to release any details about what they believe happened, but last week Cheektowaga Assistant Police Chief James J. Speyer Jr. described it as "some sort of domestic situation."
The investigation started when Leo Klinger's 2-year-old brother, Stephen, was found abandoned in a stroller near a church Thursday afternoon.
