I agree with you. Thanks.
Brian Reader is not charged with anything, IIRC.
In my opinion, I would think they argued this prior to voir dire (probably in chambers). Jury selection would have taken way longer than this. JMO.
10TV: First trial connected to Pike County family slayings delayed.
First trial connected to Pike County family slayings delayed
WAVERLY, Ohio — A judge has delayed what was supposed to be the first trial connected to the investigation into the 2016 slayings of eight family members in Ohio.
Prosecutors said Monday that both sides agreed to postpone the trial for Rita Newcomb just as jury selection was to begin.
‘I’m sure they did collect but was it planted beforehand? I don’t believe it was but is that Gerlach’s intent?
Am I missing something? Isn't this the same motion that was just denied on this past Friday?
Here is one site for live feeds, just to keep in mind for future hearings, trials, etc.

I think you are right. Time will tell.

The jurors who were being summoned were released.
Agree! Very disappointing.
So is Judge Deering is at the age limit to try capital cases after the first of the year?
There you go, it was denied but now defense is agreeing with a delay and it will be a hearing next time in court, not the start of trial with jury selection. And the jurors today were excused.
What the heck is going on?
Same in the Ohio county where I live.
It would seem (only my opinion) that they would need to return. Otherwise, defense attornies could use this "trick" anytime they didn't like the prospective jury?? Just thinking outloud here. I could easily be completely wrong.
I'm so confused and rambling at this point, I need to regroup. My brain has lost too many cells.
I'll be back.
Mine too, Rutledge.
Thanks for sharing. When will Gerlach learn? And what a lowdown, dirty deed to only send it to Junk!
A question was posed previously concerning age limits and whether or not JW was pushing his trial date back to take advantage of that, if there is indeed such a limit. I think that's what JBB is asking about with Judge Deering. Am I close JBB?
I missed it. What happened? Gerlach only turned over the information at the 11th hour to 1/3 of the prosecution by sending it to Junk?
