    Ohlson’s confession tossed out
    A judge has thrown out a recording in which a Jackson man told police he killed his ex-girlfriend, causing the first murder case in 20 years in Teton County, Idaho, to take a dramatic turn.

    Judge Bruce Pickett, of the Seventh District Court, ruled against the confession being used in the upcoming death penalty trial, agreeing with Erik Ohlson’s defense team that police violated Ohlson’s rights by interrogating him after he requested an attorney.

    Ohlson murder trial date pushed back, may move out of county

    http://www.tetonvalleynews.net/news/...ba7d209ad.html

    The trial of Jackson man Erik Ohlson, 40, charged with murdering a Driggs resident and her unborn child will not begin this summer as scheduled.

    Idaho District Judge Bruce Pickett heard arguments from Ohlson’s attorney Jim Archibald as well as Teton County Prosecutor Billie Siddoway on whether to push the trial, which is scheduled to begin July 31, back and for how long.

    “It would be unusual to have death penalty cases tried in a year,” Archibald explained. “These cases can languish in appeal courts for 20 years. Let’s do it right the first time.”

    Archibald argued that his team would not be ready, since they had not yet completed gathering evidence, let alone begun preparing arguments based on that evidence.
    Judge Pickett agreed to delay the trial but did not specify a new date, which depends on whether the trial would be moved out of the county.

    Archibald has argued that it should, explaining that media reports from the area, including reporting by the Teton Valley News, made it impossible to find an impartial jury in the county.

    “Even since I filed, there’s been ever more pre-trial publicity that’s been more aggravating to find a fair trial,” he said, pointing out in particular the media coverage of Ohlson’s confession to police being suppressed from evidence.

    Judge Pickett ordered evidence to be presented on whether to move the trial. The next hearing is set for May 26 at 11:00 am.
