Schierman Time Extended

Judge Gregory Canova granted an extension to Conner Schierman, the man accused of killing two women and two children and burning their house to hide his crimes. His attorneys now have until Jan. 19 to compile information to persuade Prosecuting Attorney Norm Maleng not to seek the death penalty.

Senior Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Scott O'Toole argued against the extension, saying he worried about "limitless delay" in getting the case to trial.

Judge Gregory Canova, however, said the time frame is reasonable given the complexity of the case.
Schierman's lawyers have new deadline, Seattle Times, Oct. 21, 2006.

UW note: O'Toole is a Trial Ad instructor.
