Monday, 08 October 2012

October 8--  The murder trial of a man accused of killing a Toombs County teenager in Florida over a year ago has been delayed.

According to Assistant State Attorney Bobby Elmore, one of the defense attorneys for 23-year-old Steven Cozzie withdrew from the case and his new lawyer was granted a continuance.  The trial had been scheduled to start this week in Walton County Court in Defuniak Springs, Florida.

Cozzie is accused of killing 15-year-old Courtney Wilkes on June 16th, 2011 while she was on vacation with her family in Seagrove Beach.  

A hearing is scheduled November 1 to set a new trial date.  The prosecution is seeking the death penalty in the case.
