Seattle murder trial for death of Juneau woman now slated for spring

Posted: January 23, 2013 - 4:05pm  |  Updated: January 24, 2013 - 12:04am

The Washington man accused of shooting a Juneau woman last January is now scheduled to stand trial on April 8.

Officials with the King County Prosecutor’s Office in Washington said Jacob Andrew Mommer’s trial was rescheduled last week because the defense attorney had another trial and additional time was needed for witness interviews.

Mommer, 19, was charged last year with first-degree murder and burglary charges in connection to the death of Ashton Ericka-Marie Reyes, 22.

Reyes was found injured on Jan. 3, 2012, in a vehicle in a parking lot in Rainier Beach, a residential neighborhood about 20 minutes south of downtown Seattle.

Prosecutors said a Seattle Police Department investigation found that Reyes and her boyfriend had arranged to sell the suspects an ounce of marijuana, but they were robbed and shot during the drug deal. The boyfriend survived the ordeal.

The next pretrial hearing in the case is now slated for Feb. 22.
