Guam - Still set to go to trial in October, Marco Nelson appeared in court today with his attorney as arguments were presented on the defense's motion to suppress. The defense alleges that blood drawn from nelson following a fatal car crash was not a medical necessity.
Nelson led police on a high speed chase and eventually slammed into a concrete utility pole resulting in the death of his four year old daughter who was improperly restrained in the backseat. The blood test, administered and ordered by doctors, confirmed that nelson was highly intoxicated and the defense is looking to have those results thrown out.
Judge James Canto took the motion under advisement and said he would issue a ruling fairly quickly. The October 16 trial date still stands.
