For the second time, Judge Kelly Mark Easton denied defense counsel’s motion Tuesday to reschedule a jury trial for Joshua Hines, the Elizabethtown man accused of killing his neighbor last April.
Hines, 25, is represented by the Department of Public Advocacy. The jury trial is set to begin March 12.
In December, co-counsel Melanie Foote presented the continuance motion. Easton denied it, saying the court would have a better idea if the trial needed to be postponed at Tuesday’s pretrial conference.
