Defense attorney Clifford Safranski informed visiting Judge Angus St. Evens that he was still waiting on discovery and information regarding Estephen Juarez’s case and requested that the hearing be moved to March 25 at 1 p.m., as he would be out on maternity leave soon. Deputy district attorney Vicki Ashworth had no objections and the judge agreed to the new date.
Juarez was arrested in connection with the death of Gene Mcarn, 19, of Rescue, who died of stab wounds on Nov. 21 after an alleged encounter with Juarez at Red Hawk Casino in Shingle Springs. Juarez is being held in the county jail on two counts of violation of probation and one count of murder with a $1 million bail hold.
