Trial Of Charlie Adelson, Accused Mastermind Of Dan Markel Murder, Set For April

Tallahassee Democrat, Trial of Charlie Adelson, Accused Mastermind of Dan Markel Murder, Set for April:

Charlie Adelson 3Charlie Adelson, the accused mastermind of the murder of his brother-in-law and Florida State law professor Dan Markel, is set to stand trial in late April.

Circuit Judge Robert Wheeler scheduled opening arguments to begin April 28 during a case management conference Friday morning at the Leon County Courthouse. ...

Adelson is being held in the Leon County Jail on charges for his alleged orchestration and financing of the plot to kill Markel. ...

Late last month, convicted Markel murderer Katherine Magbanua was brought to Tallahassee from prison to give a statement to prosecutors who are seeking a conviction against Adelson. ... Details about what Magbanua could divulge about her involvement with Markel’s former brother-in-law Adelson and the suspected murder-for-hire plot that killed the acclaimed law professor are unknown.

Florida Politics, Charlie Adelson’s Trial Set for April 24, a New Yard Line in the Long Field Toward Justice for Dan Markel:

While insiders are tight-lipped about what Magbanua’s proffer yielded, she has remained in Tallahassee since her confession. There’s no use in speculating about what will come of her cooperation, either — the only people who would really know what to expect are keeping their eyes on the ball — doing precisely what they owe to the rest of us.
