New Trial Set for Seattle Jewish Center Shooter

seattleshooter1.jpgAccused Jewish Federation attacker Naveed Haq will be retried starting Sept. 22 for the 2006 shooting spree that killed one woman and wounded five others.

King County Superior Court Judge Paris Kallas made the trial date decision on Thursday, after listening to extended testimony from Haq’s defense team and prosecutors.

Defense attorneys were asking for the trial to be delayed until early next year. Prosecutors said they will be ready to begin selecting another jury in the case in early September, in time to try the case before the winter holidays.

Kallas declared a mistrial in Haq’s first trial June 4 after the jury indicated it was deadlocked on 14 of the 15 criminal counts against Haq.

Haq, 32, is accused of shooting six women, killing one, after he burst into the offices of the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle on July 28, 2006. Haq pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.
