Two men accused of brutally beating a Beckley woman are in court one week after the crime was allegedly committed.

Alfred Pittman and Damien Totten were scheduled to have a preliminary hearing in front of Magistrate Tomi Peck. But due to conflict of scheduling with their lawyers the preliminary hearing was canceled.
