Obregon trial delayed until 2017

gavel-sxc-Jason-Morrison-webThe trial of Andrew Obregon will not take place this year.

The trial was set to begin Sept 26, but court records on Wednesday show the trial has been rescheduled to Jan. 30, 2017.

Media reports say the delay came at the request of defense counsel due to an issue caused by illness to part of the defense team.

Obregon, of Brighton, faces charges of first degree intentional homicide and numerous other charges. He is accused of killing Tywon Anderson, 37, of Kenosha, a year ago. While a person of interest and later a suspect in Anderson’s death, Obregon eluded law enforcement for almost two weeks, leading Western Kenosha County and Racine County authorities on several chases, including through farm fields still high with crops. He was captured just over the Illinois border after another chase on Oct. 13, 2015.

Obregon’s next scheduled appearance in court is Jan. 26 for a jury status hearing.
