Court grants prosecutor’s shift in Casey White trial dates
FLORENCE, Ala. (WAFF) - Prosecutors for a man who is accused of a 2015 Rogersville murder along with escaping from the Lauderdale County Jail are looking to move trial dates.
In a motion filed by the prosecution on Tuesday, the court agreed to move Casey White’s arraignment to October 11 for “judicial economy.”
The idea is that if he is already in court for multiple things on Oct. 11, then it would be easier to move everything to that day.
Court documents show that White was already scheduled to have hearings on Oct. 11 for multiple motions including a motion that argues that the death penalty is unconstitutional in this case. White then has an arraignment in the case scheduled for Dec. 2.
The prosecution also urges the court to set the trial for Dec. 12.
Casey White was in jail for a 2015 crime spree that included attempted murder, kidnapping, robbery, burglary, cruelty to animals and attempting to elude authorities. While in jail, Casey White admitted to a murder that occurred in Rogersville.
