Ind. Courts - More on "Second Gibson murder trial set to go June 16"

Updating this ILB post from May 22nd, the ILB has just received this information from Kathryn Dolan, Indiana Supreme Court Chief Public Information Officer:

Media, Judge Orth wanted me to let you know the following:

During the second day of jury selection, defendant William C. Gibson plead guilty to the murder of Stephanie Kirk. Gibson has been on trial for the murder of Stephanie Kirk and faces the death penalty. The penalty will now be determined by Judge Susan Orth. By pleading guilty to murder, in a death penalty case, Gibson waived his right for the penalty to be determined by a jury.

It is anticipated that the penalty phase will last approximately three days. It has been set for July 28, 2014 at 9 a.m. in Floyd Superior Court.
