The judge in the case of a father and son accused of allegedly beating a man, once again, delayed an arraignment for the two suspects Friday.
After having read appeals from both the state and defense regarding a preliminary hearing, District Judge Kim Schroeder asked the state to clarify its appeal, while he denied an appeal requested by Clint Floyd, the attorney for Eliseo Avila Sr. Schroeder said Floyd’s appeal procedure is not allowed by state statute.
Floyd and prosecutor Russell Hasenbank are scheduled to have appeals filed by Friday, Nov. 5. The arraignment is now on the docket for 1:15 p.m. Dec. 3 in Seward County District Court.
Also, Floyd and Paul Kitzke, the attorney for Alexander Avila-Ortiz, are scheduled to file motions to dismiss in the cases of both suspects by next Friday, according to Schroeder.
Avila and Avila-Ortiz were arrested March 29 for allegedly beating Anthony Martinez, 20, during an altercation in the 100 block of West Hickory in Liberal.
