Knapp fired his public attorney last month, and is planning to defend himself at the preliminary hearing.

Six Utah counties have filed charges against 45-year-old Knapp — 26 felonies and 13 misdemeanors total — in a string of cabin break-ins dating back to at least 2009.

Knapp is currently being held at the Sanpete County jail, and prosecution is underway in three separate cases in that county.
