    Listen to full report which lasts about 2 minutes and 20 seconds on WFIW radio for much more details, including "60 DVD's of reports and videos to go through", "Murbarger did not intend to go to jail", and "Weight of evidence warranted a $300,000 bond."

    HEADLINES FOR MONDAY, JANUARY 11TH

    25-year-old Brodey I. Murbarger had a pre-trial conference yesterday in Wayne County Circuit Court. Murbarger, his attorney Christian J. Baril, and Wayne County State’s Attorney Kevin Kakac appeared before Judge Tom Dinn via Zoom. Another pre-trial conference was scheduled for January 25th at 10:30 a.m., where Baril is expected to present a motion to allow Murbarger access to a computer or similar electronic device. He also indicated he would have a second motion related to bond, though he did not enumerate yesterday what that motion might be. Judge Michael Molt denied a motion in December to reduce Murbarger’s $300,000 cash bond.

    His attorney Christian J. Baril again demanded a speedy jury trial, but the court reiterated it is not scheduling jury trials at this time. Another conference was scheduled for the 25th to discuss two motions from Baril- one related to bond, and another requesting Murbarger have access to a computer or tablet.

    25-year-old Brodey I. Murbarger had a motion hearing via Zoom in Wayne County Circuit Court this morning. His attorney, Christian J. Baril, had filed a motion to allow him access to a computer or electronic device to review discovery materials for the case. State’s Attorney Kevin Kakac argued against the motion, saying the jail isn’t set to up store any such device or discs or provide a private room for a defendant to use them. Judge Michael Molt noted the uniqueness of the case and eventually granted the motion- but with restrictions. He said the device would have to be brand-new, and it would have to be examined by an IT specialist to ensure it only had software to allow for the reading and viewing of discovery materials and could not, for instance, access the Internet or communicate with any other device. He also said Sheriff Mike Everett and jail staff would be responsible for determining a reasonable time limit for Murbarger to access the device.

    Murbarger’s attorney filed the motion last week asking the court to allow his client access to either a computer or electronic tablet while he remains in the Wayne County Jail. The judge on Monday granted the motion but ordered the device be wiped clean, have no other software installed other than needed for viewing of discovery in the case and that no one other than Murbarger be allowed to view that discovery. The Wayne County sheriff will set the hours the defendant will have access to the device.

    "We are very thankful to our supportive community and very dear friends for coming together to complete this memorial for Megan. Special thanks to those who do the planning and work because they know how difficult things are for me. Here is the completed shelter that is located at New Hope School, where Meg attended K-8th grades. Megan would have been so happy knowing how much she is loved. [​IMG]"

    Tue, April 27

    25-year-old Brodey I. Murbarger appeared in Wayne County Circuit Court via Zoom yesterday afternoon for a status hearing. The short meeting consisted almost entirely of an order from Judge Michael Molt to Murbarger’s attorney, Christian J. Baril. In the last hearing in the case in late January, Judge Molt granted a motion that would allow Murbarger access to a computer or electronic device to review discovery material for the case. In that order, he noted the device would need to be brand-new and examined by an IT specialist to ensure it only had software to allow for the review of discovery material and no other capabilities, like Internet access. The judge noted said requirements had been met, but Baril would need to file a motion with the computer’s make, model, and serial number so the Sheriff’s Office could identify it. Baril indicated he would do so yesterday, and he hoped to bring the computer to the jail in the next day or two.

    Baril also clarified that he will be burning CDs or DVDs of discovery material after redacting necessary information from the originals, and he will deliver those items to the jail staff for Murbarger’s use. No future court date was set.

    Murbarger remains housed in the Wayne County Jail on $300,000 cash bond. He faces three counts of first-degree murder, one count of concealment of a homicidal death, and two counts of home invasion in connection to the death of Megan Nichols.

    Murbarger has now been incarcerated for 7 months since October 7th, as he reviews all pertinent discovery material.

    Would the next step be a trial with presented evidence? How long before we can expect it to start? Suicide cases are quite common in Illinois prisons.
