Wool’s trial moved to June
CRYSTAL FALLS—The trial of a Crystal falls man accused of attempted murder and shooting two horses was rescheduled for June 11-15 at a supplemental pretrial conference in Iron County Trial Court on March 5.
The trial of Luke Endjamin Wool, 20, had been scheduled for mid-March, but Judge C. Joseph Schwedler granted defense attorney Michael Scholke’s motion for a continuance in the matter in order to find a ballistics expert who may help in the defense.
Wool has been charged with attempted murder (life or any term of years), one count of discharging a firearm in or at a building (a 10-year felony), two counts of killing/torturing animals (four-year felonies), and felony firearm possession (two years).
At the March 5 hearing, Schwedler granted Scholke’s motion to hire a ballistics expert to review evidence in the case. Scholke stated that a key issue in the case was to determine whether the weapon used could fire a round the distance it would have needed to travel.
A pretrial conference has been set for May 14 at 9 a.m.
