A last minute filing of motions by the defense has resulted in a continuance of Dustin Scoville’s arraignment hearing.
The defense filed two separate motions too late to be heard in time for Wednesday’s arraignment. Motions filed by Scoville’s attorney Charlie Brewster included a motion to quash and motion for discovery and Brady Materials.
The new date for Scoville’s arraignment will be Feb. 2 at 9:30 a.m.
Scoville is the fourth person charged in connection with the December 2009 death of four-year-old Landon Payne. Also charged are Scoville’s ex-wife Katie Payne, Sharon Turnell, Katie Payne’s mother; and Sharon’s husband Charles Turnell.
Dustin Scoville is charged with two felony counts; Count I-Aiding and abetting child abuse resulting in death and Count II-Accessory to a felony.
Brewster argues in his motion to quash that there are defects in the information and in the way the offenses are charged.
