AURORA, Ill. (STMW) — Two months ago, Quentin Moore’s latest attorney expressed uncertainty about being ready for a June trial in the 2005 murder of Jorge Caro.
During a recent hearing, that June trial date was nixed as Moore’s defense sought a continuance for additional trial preparation time, according to court records.
Moore has been charged in the murders of three people in Aurora: the 2001 killings of Larry Postelwaite and Sharon Paulette, and the 2005 beating death of Jorge Caro.
Prosecutors have elected to try him in the Caro case first.
Previous trial dates also had been rescheduled for Moore, who was arrested in connection with the murders in 2007.
Moore, 32, was found fit to stand trial last year and is scheduled to return to court on June 12 for a status hearing. He is being held at the Pontiac Correctional Center, where he is serving time for an attempted murder conviction.
