Pre-trial underway for Anthony Flores

Posted: Updated:

Guam - With a trial set to begin next month, the Superior Court was expected to have a pre-trial conference in the case against Anthony C. Flores today.  Flores was convicted of murdering Shirley Taylor, but the conviction was overturned by Supreme Court justices. 

The defense, however, argues the case shouldn't go to trial again because they've alleged there's no evidence to substantiate the claims. They've also alleged double-jeopardy as they contend the murder charges were dismissed with prejudice once before.  Flores faces charges of murder, aggravated assault and possession and use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony.

Information from today's hearing was not available as of news time.
