Nine defendants for prison murder due back in court

Posted: Apr 13, 2018 5:08 PM Updated:

The nine defendants charged in last year's murder in the prison will be back in court on Monday. This time to get a new trial date. As reported, the court has noted difficulty securing legal counsel for this case.

Already a dozen attorneys have withdrawn due to conflicts or lack of experience.

Again, Marvin Rechim, A-Last Simiron, Benster Benjamin, Isler Miller, Albert Santos, and Jimmy Hadley, are charged with the murder of prison detainee, Manson Isar.

Andrew Rios Jr. is charged with criminal sexual conduct, accused of digitally penetrating Isar.

Recently added to the lineup, Vimson Menisio and Jeremiah Isezaki who are accused of soliciting or conspiring in what court documents called a revenge attack on the victim, who was in jail for allegedly raping a teen with Down Syndrome.

That hearing again is for Monday at 9 a.m.
