GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - According to Mesa County District Attorney Pete Hautzinger, defense lawyers for Corporal Kirk Firko and Trooper Ivan Lawyer said they need more time to present their cases.
A new trial date has been set for the first two weeks of April, 2012.
On July 20, 2010, troopers responded to the scene of what was first reported as a hit-and-run on Glade Park Road.
Firko and Lawyer are accused of kicking in Kemp's door at a nearby house while investigating that accident.
Kemp was unarmed, but Lawyer told a Grand Jury he saw a flash of light and thought he had been shot so he fired at Kemp, killing him.
