Trial Of Ex-Radio Reporter Delayed Until Fall
At least they don't have the death penalty in Massachusetts
The Kansas City Star reports that the trial of former Missouri radio reporter James Keown, who is accused of killing his wife by spiking her Gatorade with antifreeze, will take place in Massachusetts this November.
Keown, 32, is currently being held without bail, and if the trial does start in November he will have spent nearly two years in jail. An autopsy found that Keown’s wife had been poisoned with a chemical found in antifreeze. Keown was arrested in 2005 at the Jefferson City, Missouri, radio station where he worked and was taken to Massachusetts to face a first-degree murder charge in the September 2004 death of Julie Keown, 31.
