Trial pushed back to Spring 2020 - seriously?! :mad:

Horvath Murder Trial Delayed

A Monroe County judge has agreed to delay the murder trial of Michael Horvath for a second time. Horvath is charged with kidnapping and killing holly grim of Lehigh County back in 20-13 and then burying her body at his home in Ross Township. Grim's remains were found on Horvath's property in 2016. His trial was expected to start next month. Horvath and his attorneys were in court today asking to push that back until next year. The judge agreed to delay the trial until sometime in the spring. The Monroe County District Attorney is seeking the death penalty in that murder case.

As family’s wait for answers hits six years, fight over lawyer could again delay trial in Holly Grim killing

"Michael Horvath’s public defender says she’s too overwhelmed to represent him in his upcoming capital murder trial for the 2013 kidnapping and killing of Lower Macungie Township resident Holly Grim, and wants off the case.

That’s fine with Horvath; he’s been begging for a new court-appointed lawyer since 2017."

"And if Patti-Worthington agrees to appoint new counsel this late in the proceedings, Horvath may not face a jury for years."

This is just not acceptable.
It's been YEARS!
He pled not guilty right? So he should be fighting to get his trial on so he can prove his innocence. (I do not think he is innocent)
This is crazy and upsetting.

May 2021 be the year Holly gets justice.
Unfortunately, probably not. :(

Trial for suspect in Holly Grim kidnapping and killing pushed back to 2022

From the article:
The trial of Michael Horvath, the Monroe County man accused of kidnapping and killing Lower Macungie Township resident Holly Grim, has been pushed back to January 2022, more than eight years after the 41-year-old mother of one vanished.

Monroe County Judge Margherita Patti-Worthington said the delay is necessary due to COVID-19 precautions, which have suspended jury trials and created a backlog of court cases. Horvath’s trial is projected to last a month or more, including jury selection.

Clipped only parts of the article for space.
In March 2016, troopers placed a note on the windshield of Horvath’s truck that read, “We know what you did to Holly Grim. Do the right thing.”

The ruse didn’t pay off as investigators hoped, but after a fourth interview with police in September 2016 when Horvath admitted he misled them about his excuse for missing work, was unable to explain the early morning cellphone call near Grim’s trailer and agreed that his blood on Grim’s door looked fresh, police obtained a warrant to search Horvath’s property in Ross Township, Rakaczewski said.

Mory said one coworker with whom she had had a relationship harassed her and sent her unwanted items and another was upset that Grim had intervened in his relationship with her friend.

inside Horvath’s home that included videotapes and DVDs on serial killers and murder, handcuffs and leg shackles, a stun gun, lock picking manuals and tools and homemade guns capable of firing shotgun shells and .22 caliber ammunition.

A few notes and thoughts.
The judge/DA finally agreed there was probable cause for a search warrant after the forth interview with him. Perpetual pressure on POI's pays off.
Who was the employee sending her unwanted gifts?
And, was Allen Organ employee Stephanie Roof's murderer the guy that was upset Holly "intervened" in his relationship with her friend?
