SAN JOSE, Calif. (KTVU) - A trial date has been set for the man accused of killing missing Morgan Hill teenager Sierra LaMar.

The trial date for the high profile murder case of suspect Antolin Garcia-Torres is set for August 1.

The trial has been delayed in the past multiple times.
 




I don't bet -- but if I did I wouldn't bet a wooden nickel the trial begins August 1st.

 


I stand by what I've said . . . delay coming again!

Jury selection continues in Sierra LaMar murder trial
Published: January 3, 2017, 7:44 am  |  Updated: January 3, 2017, 8:49 am

SANTA CLARA COUNTY (KRON) — Jury selections are continuing Tuesday morning in the trial of Antolin Garcia-Torres who has been charged with the kidnapping and killing Sierra LaMar, the 15-year-old girl who went missing in 2012.
 
Opening statements are scheduled to happen on January 18th.

Garcia-Torres was arrested in May 2012 after Sierra’s DNA was found in his red Volkswagen Jetta. He was formally indicted in February of 2014 in the murder. Lamar’s remains have never been found.

The defense for Garcia-Torres plans to argue that this is a missing person case. In October 2016, lawyers for Torres asked the court to allow evidence they say will show that LaMar ran away from home.

Sierra LaMar murder trial postponed — again 
PUBLISHED: January 17, 2017 at 1:25 pm | UPDATED: January 17, 2017 at 6:04 pm

SAN JOSE — A judge Tuesday postponed the capital murder trial of the man charged with killing missing teen Sierra LaMar by at least 12 days to give defense lawyers more time to analyze new information on the key genetic evidence against him.

The trial, which was set to start Wednesday, could be delayed even longer than to Jan. 30 if Superior Court Judge Vanessa A. Zecher later this week grants a motion by defense attorneys for Antolin Garcia-Torres to postpone it until Feb. 27.

Sierra disappeared nearly five years ago on March 16, 2012, on her way to her school bus stop in a rural area north of Morgan Hill.

Although her body has never been found, prosecutors charged Garcia-Torres, now 25, based on circumstantial evidence, including DNA consistent with his on her clothing, which was found in a field near her bus stop. Also, DNA consistent with hers was found in Garcia-Torres’ Volkswagen Jetta, including in the trunk, and on gloves and a rope in the trunk.

If Garcia-Torres is convicted of Sierra’s murder, the jury then would decide whether to sentence him to life without parole or death.

Two different kinds of tests performed by the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s crime lab had supported the prosecution’s contention that the complex mixed samples contained his DNA. But one of the tests is now inconclusive under the revised protocol.

Defense attorneys asked Tuesday on the eve of opening statements for more time to analyze the implications of the more than 1,000 pages of new information since they received some of the documents late last week.

Jury Selected in Sierra LaMar Trial
Published 6 hours ago | Updated 5 hours ago

Both the prosecution and defense in the Sierra LaMar murder trial on Tuesday decided on a jury.
 
Opening statements were scheduled to begin Wednesday, but a judge on Tuesday against postponed the trial by at least two weeks to give defense lawyers more time to analyze new information on the crime lab's DNA analysis procedures.
 
Opening statements are now scheduled for January 30.

"The prosecution needs to build this case without a body, without a crime scene," Clark said. "The defense needs to give an alternate theory that Sierra is a runaway."
