Today has been a big news day for Jahar’s case. The three major decisions made by Judge O’Toole today are:
- The start of the trial has been been moved from November 3, 2014, to January 5, 2015. The defense had requested a delay until September 2015.
- The defense motion for change of venue has been denied. The trial will be held in Boston.
- The defense must disclose to the prosecution by December 15 the mitigating factors it will argue in an attempt to avoid the death penalty.
Please continue to pray for Jahar’s lawyers as they prepare for the trial. More than anything, pray that God will providentially orchestrate everything that happens in such a way that Jahar will be drawn to Christ.
