Strader Trial Rescheduled

Jurors chosen Thursday for the trial of the couple accused of violating graves were told they were excused after court officials realized the trial could not be completed in the allotted time. Officials say following a morning of voir dire, and attorney's strikes to the jury panel in the Jason and Taunya Strader case, Judge Andrew Self met with the attorneys. After their meeting Judge Self told the jurors that they were excused because they had determined that the time scheduled for the trial would not be long enough.

Last week Strader attorney Rick Boling expressed concern that finding a jury might be difficult because of the large number people with connection to the graves allegedly violated. Boling says the Straders are ready to show the community they have done nothing wrong.

Calls to Commonwealth Attorney Lynn Pryor have not been returned. The trial has been rescheduled for the week of August 4th.
