WILLMAR -- An Atwater man involved in an armed standoff in June faces a jury trial next month on six counts, including assault, terroristic threats and the use of deadly force against a peace officer.

James Hinman, 46, had been scheduled to appear Thursday in Kandiyohi County District Court for an om-nibus hearing. After he failed to show up, a warrant was issued for his arrest.

He was taken into custody on Sunday.
