The murder trial of a Clarkston man accused of killing his girlfriend in March has been delayed as the judge considers motions from the defense.
The Lewiston Tribune reports attorneys for 54-year-old John Weber are seeking a bond review and his release from the Asotin County Jail where he’s being held on a $1 million bond.
Weber has denied any wrongdoing in the death of 50-year-old Kym Berreman who died March 7th, after a suicide was reported at their residence on the 1100 block of Fifth Street in Clarkston. Weber has been charged with second-degree murder and tampering with evidence.
Prosecutors and the defense have been arguing over evidence in the case. Weber’s attorneys are seeking to have their experts test jewelry Berreman was wearing at the time of her death before the items are released to family. A sweatshirt allegedly worn by Weber at the time of the incident is also in question.
Judge Brooke Burns said all pending issues will be addressed next week, along with setting a new trial date. (Lewiston Tribune)
