Schierman Motions

Judge Gregory Canova (King County Superior Court) has granted the defense motion to extend the time for the prosecutor to file notice of seeking the death penalty by 60 days in the trial of Conner Schierman for murder and arson. Judge Canova said that he needs more time to decide whether the release of investigative documents to KING-TV would prevent Schierman from receiving a fair trial. Defense attorney James Conroy is seeking an order preventing the further release of document. He is also moving for a change of venue.
