Defense attorney David Weiner told Judge Daniel B. Proud that he was still waiting for more information from the Department of Justice regarding Colleen Harris’ case.
Proud accepted a new court date of Friday, Nov. 8 at 8 a.m. in Department 2. He noted that the trial for the case was still set for Jan. 14, for an estimated six days.
Harris is accused of murdering her third husband, Bob Harris, 72. This is her second time as a defendant in a murder case, after she called El Dorado County Sheriff’s dispatch in 1985 to inform it that her second husband, James Batten, was dead. During the trial, she claimed she had amnesia and that Batten had sexually assaulted both her and her daughter from her first husband. She was found not guilty by a jury of nine women and three men.
