Change of venue sought in Katrina Smith murder case
Posted Sep 04, 2013 @ 12:28 PM

ROCKFORD — Todd C. Smith has asked Judge John Truitt to try his first-degree murder case elsewhere, fearing that he cannot receive a fair trial in Winnebago County.

Today, Smith’s public defender, Margie O’Connor, filed motions for a change of venue and to suppress evidence. A change of venue is typically granted when attorneys have demonstrated that a defendant could not receive a fair trial because of extensive pretrial publicity.

Smith, of Machesney Park, has pleaded not guilty to all 11 counts listed in the bill of indictment
 
Smith’s next hearing is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Oct. 3.

I think that he would get a fair trial, too.  If he thinks that it is all about him, it's not--it's about justice for Katrina!  IIRC, most of the pretrial coverage was about the search for Katrina--not him.  Also, it was difficult finding updates on the case, especially after the arrest.

Todd Smith testifies evidence against him should be thrown out
Posted: Nov 01, 2013 5:50 PM CDT

ROCKFORD (WREX) -
A Machesney Park man accused of killing Katrina Smith takes the stand to ask for some evidence to be thrown out. Todd Smith is accused of beating Katrina Smith to death and throwing her body in the Rock River last year. While Katrina Smith was a missing person's Todd Smith was questioned and police asked to search his home.  He agreed twice, signing two different consent to search papers with officers but had asked to be there when it happened.

Smith was before a judge today asking for what was found during the search to be suppressed. On the witness stand, Todd Smith described himself as stress out and that he was even confused at times. He says he wanted to help police search for Katrina so he signed the papers but he didn't really read the fine print.

The state argues that he did because in the consent papers they asked Smith to mark different items including allowing his home, a cell phone and computer to be searched. But he specified that he did not want a different computer searched. The state also says he was able to be at home when at least part of the search happened especially when any of the items were actually removed from the home. The defense had asked particularly for a pair of hiking boots taken from the home to not be allowed into evidence. A judge disagreed and said it would all stay.

Sorry, made a typo in my above post.   Should be boots, not boos.

Judge denies motion to suppress evidence in Katrina Smith murder case
Posted Nov. 1, 2013 @ 3:08 pm

 
Smith's conditions on the searches weren't written on either of the consent forms he signed. Truitt pointed out the forms clearly state police can seize anything they felt relevant.

Smith also agreed to allow police to search Katrina's blue Chevrolet Cruze which had been found abandoned in Machesney Park the night she was reported missing.

"Even if you accept the defendant's version, he was present when the items were seized," Truitt said, adding that the consent form "really leaves it up to their discretion" to seize relevant evidence or items.

Although prosecutors were allowed to cross examine Smith, their questions were limited to the illegal search and seizure motion and so other aspects of the case were not discussed.

The significance of the boots is not clear in the overall case.

Arguments over whether his eventual trial on charges of killing his wife should be moved to another jurisdiction because of excessive pretrial publicity were delayed.
 
He was arrested Nov. 20 on charges of first-degree murder. If convicted, he faces up to 100 years in prison.

He returns to court for a brief status appearance Nov. 11.
