According to Humboldt County court watcher, John Chiv (and new guest columnist here) the trial of Gary Bullock originally set for this fall has been postponed to February 8. Chiv reports  in his blog that Father Eric Freed’s twin sister objected to the continuation. Chiv wrote,

She said the family is in limbo with these continuances. She spoke about her 90 year old father deserving some peace and resolution.

Bullock is charged with entering the Catholic Church rectory where Father Freed lived and bludgeoning the priest to death in the early hours of New Years Day 2014. (Timeline of events here.)
