Marci Kitchen's attorney files a motion for continuance for preliminary hearing; hopefully it will be heard in an open courtroom
Tomorrow an intervention was already scheduled for Marci Kitchen.
Her attorney filed a motion to continue on 9/27. That hearing is scheduled for 2 p.m. tomorrow.
Judge Joyce Hinrichs mentioned at arraignment, intervention may not be on record. With the interest in this case, I hope that motion is heard in an open courtroom.
And not just included in intervention since there have already been delays in this case.
