GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A judge granted a request from former Grand Rapids Police Department Officer Chris Schurr’s defense team to once again delay his preliminary exam.
Last month, Schurr's legal team requested an adjournment due to a "large amount of discovery.”
That request was granted, and the preliminary exam was pushed to August 30.
Friday, a hearing was held for following the defense's request to adjourn the exam again.
WATCH THE FULL HEARING:
The judge granted the request to adjourn the hearing without a date for now.
Schurr is accused of shooting and killing Patrick Lyoya on April 4. He’s charged with second-degree murder.
A status conference is scheduled for September 23 for Kent County Prosecutor Chris Becker to meet with Shurr's attorneys to see if they are prepared for the preliminary exam yet.
