Trial delay in Northwest killing spreeOctober 2, 2013 @ 8:49 pm
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A federal judge in Portland, Ore., has delayed the trial of a couple accused in a Northwest crime spree that claimed four lives.
On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Ancer Haggerty decided to postpone the trial of David "Joey" Pedersen and Holly Ann Grigsby two more months, from May 5 to July 7 next year.
The Oregonian reports ( http://is.gd/8ti7Wd) Grigsby's lawyers also asked for another delay. They want the judge to postpone until next year hearings that will determine whether Attorney General Eric Holder pursues the death penalty. The judge said he would decide on that request by Monday.
Pedersen and Grigsby are accused of a white supremacist conspiracy in the 2011 killing of an Oregon man, a California man and Pedersen's father and stepmother in Washington state.
