Kalamazoo Massacre Trial Delay Expected

Jason Dalton was scheduled to go on trial in about a month in Kalamazoo on 16 charges from a massacre last year, but that will likely be delayed because his attorney plans to file an appeal today. Defense attorney Eusebio Solis told the “Battle Creek Enquirer” everything Dalton said to detectives after his arrest should be suppressed because Dalton said he didn’t want to talk. He says the detectives kept questioning him anyway. Judge Alexander Lipsey ruled last month that part of one interrogation and all of a second interview could be used at trial by the prosecution. Solis wants it all tossed. He will ask the Michigan Court of Appeals for a hearing. There is no telling how long that could take. Dalton is charged with shooting eight people, killing six of them, claiming a demon in his Uber app was telling him who to kill, and who just needed rides. They plan an insanity defense.
