ST. JOHNSBURY, Vermont — Lawyers representing three men charged in connection with the killing of a Vermont woman in 2010 have asked for more time to prepare for a trial.
The Caledonian Record reports (http://bit.ly/1DCRJGq) a judge met with prosecutors and defense lawyers on Feb. 12, asking them to help set trial dates. He ended up delaying the matter for 45 days.
Keith Baird, Richard Fletcher and Michael Norrie have all pleaded not guilty to taking part in the killing of 78-year-old Pat O'Hagan of Sheffield. All three are in prison on unrelated convictions.
Judge Robert Bent discussed the possibility of holding the Norrie trial first. Prosecutor Lisa Warren said Norrie, who is serving time out of state on an unrelated federal gun conviction, will soon be returning to Vermont.
