ST. ALBANS, Vt. (AP) - A lawyer for a Vermont man accused of shooting to death a woman during a road-rage dispute says he doesn't believe the case will be ready for trial until the fall.
Matthew Webster, 30, of Swanton, has pleaded not guilty to the September shooting death of 30-year-old Anna Alger of Highgate.
Webster allegedly ran a red light in St. Albans and was nearly struck by Alger's car. Alger got out of her car and was yelling as she approached Webster.
A summer trial was the goal, but the St. Albans Messenger reports defense attorney Steve Dunham says he is still working on preparing a defense and is preparing a motion to suppress evidence. He said he doesn't believe the case will be ready for trial until September or October.
