No Trial Delay For Student Charged With U Of I Kidnapping
(Urbana, IL) — A judge is not delaying the trial of the man accused of kidnapping a Chinese-born U of I scholar. Judge Colin Bruce yesterday said that the request from Brendt Christensen’s lawyers to delay the trial for about a year is ‘unwarranted.’ Christensen is set to go on trial at the end of February. The judge gave federal prosecutors until the beginning of February to decide if they will seek the death penalty.
