Pre-Trial Motions in Wilkes Trial
Friday, 07 June 2013

June 7--  The Courtney Wilkes murder trial is scheduled to start Monday in Florida.

ImageTwenty-four-year old Steven Cozzie is accused of killing Lyons teenager Courtney Wilkes while she was vacationing with her family in Seagrove Beach on June 16, 2011.

Cozzie's attorneys are asking Judge Kelvin Wells to suppress one of the interviews he did with police following his arrest, according to Florida prosecutor Bobby Elmore.

The motion was made at a pre-trial hearing Thursday afternoon at the courthouse in Defuniak Springs, Florida.

The state is seeking the death penalty for Cozzie on the murder charge.  He's also charged with sexual battery, aggravated child abuse and kidnapping.

Jury selection will start Monday for the trial which Elmore says could last two weeks.
