Hearing Postponed For Teen Accused Of Murder

The 16-year-old boy charged with murder in a stabbing in Weaverville has been found competent to stand trial, according to the Trinity Journal. The boy is accused of the January 8th stabbing death of 28-year-old Nathan Purdue, reportedly because he thought Purdue was making advances towards his girlfriend. A hearing scheduled for next week to determine whether the case will be transferred from juvenile court to adult criminal court was postponed to October at the request of defense attorney Larry Olsen. He indicated certain psychiatric reports are still pending in his client’s case, and Trinity County District Attorney Donna Daly agreed to set a new date in October for the transfer fitness hearing.
