LIBERTY — Prosecutors and the attorney for Brittany Miller agreed Monday to an early spring trial date for the Casey County teenager accused of trying to kill her grandfather, Leonard Walls, with antifreeze.
Casey Circuit Judge James Weddle set April 6 for the attempted murder trial, which was initially scheduled for earlier this month but was postponed because Miller's attorney had not had a chance to examine a computer that was seized as evidence in the case.
Defense attorney Mark Stanziano said Monday that his expert received the computer last week from prosecutors but will need time to examine its hard drive.
Miller's computer figures to be a key element in the case. It was confiscated from Walls' residence, which he shared with his granddaughter, after he nearly died from antifreeze poisoning last year.
