D.C. Superior Court Judge Russell Canan '76 is in The Washington Times on the Albrecht Muth murder trial.
From The Washington Times: "Judge Canan told attorneys Thursday to be prepared with their respective expert reports for a September hearing to determine whether Albrecht Muth is mentally competent to stand trial in the murder of his wife, Viola Drath.
Judge Russell Canan made the decision after both sides of the case lobbied for more time to make their respective determinations about the man who regularly wore a military costume before he was arrested, and has requested the aid of at least one high-ranking U.S. military official for his defense strategy.
Judge Canan also set a December backup trial date in anticipation of the court proceedings extending past the initially planned October trial date. When one of Mr. Muth's attorneys deemed December "ineffective,” the judge also added a March 2013 date."
