California Delay Duncan Trial 1 Year

Item: California murder trial for Joseph Duncan delayed one year/John Asbury, Riverside Press Enterpris

More Info: In court last week, Duncan, who is representing himself, told the court he would not be ready to go to trial by November, if at all. He said he still needed thousands of pages of evidence from the district attorney's office that have not been turned over. Riverside County Superior Court Judge David Downing said he wanted the case to go to trial no later than September 2011. He ordered prosecutors to have the evidence given to Duncan by January or February.

Question: Will Joseph Duncan ever be put to death for his sex crimes against children and the murder of Shasta Groene's family?
