Bad Weather Postpones Michael Palmer Trial

Posted: Updated:

The trial for a Marion County man accused of shooting and killing his father in law was postponed on Tuesday due to bad weather.

Prosecutors said Michael Palmer and his wife Kristyn shot and killed her father, Everett Wilson, in 2011.

Marion County Prosecuting attorney, Pat Wilson, said the court decided the roads were not safe enough to call everyone in.

Weather permitting, Wilson said the trial will begin Thursday morning with jury selection and a trip to the scene of the murder.

Wilson said opening statements and testimony may not begin until Friday.

Both Michael and Kristyn Palmer have been held in the North Central Regional Jail since December of 2011.
