No Delaware Trial for Court Shooter's Relatives

Posted:
DOVER, Del. (AP) - A federal judge has ordered that the trial of relatives of a man who killed two people at a Delaware courthouse will be held outside the state.
    
The ruling by Judge Gregory Sleet on Friday came a week after prosecutors sought to join a defense motion for Sleet to recuse himself, and several months after he initially rejected a defense request to move the trial to another state because of concerns about media coverage tainting the jury pool.
    
David Matusiewicz, his mother, Lenore, and his sister, Amy Gonzalez, are charged with conspiracy and stalking of David Matusiewicz's ex-wife, Christine Belford.
    
Belford and a friend were fatally shot by Matusiewicz's father in February 2013 at the New Castle County courthouse. Thomas Matusiewicz then exchanged gunfire with security officers before killing himself.
