Bossier-Webster District Attorney Schuyler Marvin is expected to file a motion to set a trial date for the third official from the now defunct Explo Systems Inc.
Judge Mike Nerren, 26th judicial district judge, ruled to upset and reset the trial for William Terry Wright, who is accused of a laundry list of charges in relation to the 2012 explosion at Camp Minden.
“The defendant chose to allow Judge Michael Craig to make a ruling,” Marvin said, adding Wright is joining the case of the other two defendants, David Fincher and David Allen Smith. “Judge Craig has already heard two days of testimony from one of their witnesses and one of ours. Once a decision is made, either we will file an appeal or they will. Depending on how that turns out, we will go from there.”
A Nov. 23 deadline has been set for either side to submit any further testimony or briefs in the other case.
Wright is accused of unlawful storage of explosives, conspiracy to commit unlawful storage of explosives, reckless use of explosives, failure to obtain magazine license, conspiracy to commit failure to obtain magazine license, failure to properly mark explosive material, conspiracy to commit failure to properly mark explosive material, failure to keep accurate inventory and conspiracy to commit failure to keep accurate inventory.
Wright’s attorney, Donald Hathaway, had filed motions to withdraw, a bill of particulars, to quash and for a change of venue. All of those, with the exception of the motion to quash, have been withdrawn.
Marvin says a trial date has not yet been set.
