Preliminary hearing was scheduled for McMullens' motel suspect Maxx Robison this morning in Courtroom 4.
At the intervention hearing for Robison yesterday, his attorney, Public Defender Jennifer Dixon said that an offer had been made by the people, which would remain
open until this morning.
First, it seemed the case would resolve. Then, when Robison appeared in court, he told his attorneu he would not take the plea. All this between back and forth between Courtroom 4 and 2. Finally, the case ended back in Courtroom 2 for an oral motion to continue by the People. The DA's office learned this morning a witness was unavailable as she was sick.
The People's offer was withdrawn.
