New trial date set for alleged Hoonah cop killer

Posted: October 11, 2011 - 5:25pm

A new trial date has been set for the alleged killer of two Hoonah police officers.

John N. Marvin Jr., will be tried early next year.

Sitka Superior Court Judge David George on Monday scheduled the jury trial to begin Jan. 30, 2012 at the Dimond Courthouse. The trial was originally slated to begin Monday.

George also scheduled a second competency hearing for Marvin on Jan. 6., to determine whether Marvin is competent to stand trial.

Marvin, 46, is accused of shooting two Hoonah police officers, Anthony Wallace, 32, and Matthew Tokuoka, 39, to death in August 2010. Marvin has pleaded not guilty and faces two charges of first-degree murder and two charges of weapons misconduct.
