Judge delays Duncan's trial until OctoberPosted: Updated:
COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - A judge in North Idaho has decided to delay Joseph E. Duncan's murder trial until October 16.
Duncan's defense attorneys argued they need more time to go through 20,000 pages of documents and more than 100 CDs and DVDs. Prosecutors argued the victims' family members deserve closure, but say they too could use the time to build a stronger case against Duncan.
The delay also puts off hearings on whether to grant a change of venue and whether to bring in an outside jury to hear the case. Duncan's attorney's say their client can't get a fair trial in Kootenai County because of all the publicity. Judge Fred Gibler decided to hear arguments for those motions on August 22-23.
