Schoharie, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The murder trial of Cal Harris has been postponed until January 2015 after judge George R. Bartlett III granted the defense's request for more time to prepare. This will be his third murder trial for the death of his wife, Michele.
At Harris' pretrial hearing on Aug. 20 in Schoharie County Court, the defense team said it would be "impossible to be ready" by the original trial date of Sept. 15.
The court then pushed the trial back until October.
According to Bruce Barket, one of Harris' defense attorneys from Barket, Marion, Epstein & Kearon LLC, the trial has now been postponed again until Jan. 7, 2015 to give the defense team more time to prepare.
