BUCKHANNON — The trial for the man accused of murdering his aunt and wounding his uncle in a pre-Christmas shooting last year has been continued for the third time.
Howard Clarence Jenner, 28, asked Judge Thomas Keadle to appoint a new attorney on his behalf in an Oct. 31 hearing.
Keadle appointed Russell Stobbs to replace Hunter Simmons and Brian Hinkle after Jenner advised the court that he couldn’t get along with Simmons.
However, the change in attorneys came just two weeks before Jenner’s trial was slated to begin Nov. 13.
After conferring with both attorneys, Keadle set a pre-trial conference for Jan. 4, jury selection for Jan. 28 and the trial to follow immediately afterwards.
Reger said he expects the trial to last three or four days.
