Ind. Courts - More on "Murder case could sit year in legal limbo"

Updating this ILB post from May 5th, about the case relating to the murder of Erin Justin, whose body was found in Noble County, but whose body may have been moved from Allen County, Rebecca S. Green of the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette had another story Saturday, headed "Noble prosecutor appeals venue ruling in murder case." It begins:

Noble County Prosecutor Steve Clouse wants a higher court to review a judge’s recent decision in a pending murder case.

Filed Friday, the motion for an interlocutory appeal asks the state’s appellate court to decide whether the case against Andres Gonzalez Jr. remains in Noble County or gets transferred to Allen County, as Gonzalez’s defense attorney requested.

An interlocutory appeal is filed while the case is pending – in this case, still in its beginning stages.
