CASPER, Wyoming — The trial of a former Marine accused of shooting a man to death outside a strip club near Casper has again been delayed to give the defense time to review recently released evidence.
The Casper Star-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1loLrUH ) John Knospler Jr.'s case was extended once already to Sept. 22 to give both sides more time to review the evidence. The court granted another extension to a date that will be set later in October.
Knospler has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder in the October death of 24-year-old James Baldwin. Investigators say witnesses told them Baldwin was shot as he was trying to get into a car that Knospler was sitting in.
Knospler's attorneys say their client was acting in self-defense.
