Laurean Trial Pushed Back

04/13/2010 7 comments

In what must be a huge disappointment to Maria Lauterbach’s family, Judge Charles Henry rescheduled the murder trial for August 9 in Wayne County.

You may recall Dick McNeil ‘threatened’ the Judge by saying if he didn’t grant the delay Laurean wouldn’t receive a fair trial – words no Judge ever wants to hear!

McNeil slipped in a bathroom in January and underwent knee surgery.  He claims the surgery and physical therapy have caused him to delay preparing a proper defense on Laurean’s behalf.

McNeil also said he just received the DNA – military and state – documents and he needs to to review those because he feels it is crucial to the case.

If you remember, the DNA proved that Laurean was not the father of Maria’s baby.

District Attorney Dewey Hudson claims McNeil had plenty of time to prepare for a June trial.
