Second Trial For Seattle Shooter Postponed

seattleshooter1.jpgA King County judge postponed the second trial of accused Jewish Federation shooter Naveed Haq for several months, the Seattle Times reports.

The delay was ordered by Superior Court Judge Paris Kallas so defense attorneys can review the estimated 500 to 600 recordings of telephone calls to and from Haq in the King County Jail that were turned over by prosecutors.

Kallas had initially set Haq’s retrial for Sept. 22. Kallas scheduled a hearing for Aug. 6 to determine the date of Haq’s new trial, which will likely be in January.

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 has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.
