More than two years after a home intruder shot 23-year-old cycling and vegan punk-rock scenester Mitchell Dubey to death, after nine months after police made an arrest in the case, the alleged killer may be going on trial.
Thomas Ullmann, the public defender representing the alleged shooter, Tashaun Fair, filed a “speedy trial” motion on his client’s behalf in state Superior Court Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the trial has been assigned to Judge Jon Blue. Fair’s trial is now scheduled to begin after a separate trial before Judge Blue is completed; that separate case begins May 6 and is expected to last several weeks.
Fair has pleaded not guilty in the case. Click here for a story exploring the case made against Fair. Fair has been imprisoned on a $3 million bond as he awaits trial.
