Deputy District Attorney Trish Kelliher went over some changes to a jury questionnaire, including questions about living in South Lake Tahoe and knowing any of the parties associated with the case of Andrew Sanford.
Defense attorney Erik Schlueter noted that he had discovery that was being sent to Kelliher that week.
Though one of Sanford’s wisdom teeth had “been yanked,” Schlueter said, the bill was still being bounced around law enforcement agencies in El Dorado County and Sacramento.
A new hearing was made for Dec. 20 at 1:30 p.m. in Department 1.
Sanford is accused of the Aug. 14, 1980, murder of 16-year-old Richard Swanson while robbing the South “Y” Shell gas station in South Lake Tahoe.
