WEBSTER SPRINGS, W.Va. — The triple murder trial of a Webster County husband and wife has been rescheduled for Sept. 17 after problems continued Monday with seating a jury.
Michael and Amanda York are charged with three counts of murder. The couple allegedly killed Dustin Brown, Lamar Allen and Denise Coates in June 2013. Two of the three bodies were found in the Yorks’ yard near Hacker Valley.
Prosecutors and defense attorneys began jury selection last week but couldn’t find the necessary number. Another group of potential jurors were brought in Monday and while progress was made, a jury still was not seated.
The judge rescheduled the trial for next month and ordered another 150 potential jurors to report to the courthouse in Webster Springs.
