ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The judge who will decide whether a former St. Louis police officer murdered a man in the line of duty is sending no signals about where things stand.
Judge Timothy Wilson is also working on another case, with lawyers and a handcuffed defendant in his court room. Then he went into his chambers with a inner door hung with a gold tinsel Christmas wreath and didn’t return our calls. The questions we want to ask Judge Wilson are how’s he going to announce his verdict. Will he call everyone back into court, or just post it online? Has he already reached a verdict, or is he still deliberating? With the barricades up for protesters and talk of unrest, people want to know his plan.
KMOX contacted both the defense and prosecution, and they both say they’re not getting any timetable from Judge Wilson on the verdict.
