WILKES-BARRE, Pa. – Prosecutors are seeking to delay the trial of a man charged in connection with a fatal hit-and-run accident. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Luzerne County prosecutors have requested more time to prepare in the case against 23-year-old Thomas Letteer Jr., who stands accused in the death of 5-year-old Kevin Miller.
Letteer was charged in April with a felony after prosecutors alleged he fled the scene after striking the child with his vehicle as the young boy crossed the street. The accident occurred in December 2012.
Prosecutors are seeking more time to prepare for the trial which was set for January, saying an expert witness would not be available and the assistant district attorney had insufficient preparation time due to a triple homicide case.
