Editor's Notebook: Ice Skating, Murder Case Update and More

Georgetown Murder Case Closer to Trial

This week the attorneys in the Albrecht Muth case updated the judge on their evidence sharing (or alleged insufficient sharing) for the trial for Viola Drath's August 2011 murder. Muth appeared in court, thin, pale and weak thanks to a hunger strike he recently re-initiated. His attorneys and their experts are preparing to argue that Muth is not competent to stand trial, though government experts think otherwise. Read about this week's status hearing here.
