Trial set for accused murderer Flores

Posted: Updated:

Guam - After his murder conviction was overturned, Anthony C. Flores is now scheduled to go to trial next month.  Flores is charged with beating Sherri Lea Taylor at the Hamilton Hotel in November 1999 and then tying her up with a phone cord.  He was found guilty several years ago of recklessly murdering Taylor, but a Supreme Court panel determined that the lower court failed to question jurors about publicity in the middle of the trial.

The defense alleged that an interview KUAM News conducted with the government's first witness created highly emotional and prejudicial publicity, violating his right to a fair trial.

A new trial is now scheduled to begin on July 7 and a pre-trial conference is scheduled for June 29.
