Trial Set for Oct. 2012 in Central Missouri Shootings
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A man charged with three murders for a central Missouri shooting rampage has been scheduled to go to trial more than a year from now.
The Jefferson City News Tribune reports that a Boone County judge has set an October 2012 trial for Joshua Maylee. Prosecutors have said they will seek the death penalty.
Maylee faces three first-degree murder charges and one attempted murder charge for the Oct. 26, 2010, shootings. He is accused of killing Allen and Jackie Pinet at their Holts Summit home and Jeff Werdehausen at his home in Callaway County. He also is charged with attempting to kill Werdehausen's wife, Gina, who survived a gunshot wound.
The trial was moved from Callaway County to Boone County.
