Hearing Delayed for Teens Accused in Wyoming Slayings
CODY, Wyo. (AP) — A court hearing has been delayed for two teenagers accused in the shooting deaths of a woman and her parents near the Wyoming-Montana border.
Both prosecutors and defense attorneys requested the postponement of the preliminary hearing for 19-year-old Stephen Hammer and 18-year-old Tanner Vanpelt.
The hearing had been scheduled for Wednesday and will now take place April 10.
The teens are accused of stealing one of the victim’s Audi sport-utility vehicle from the small community of Clark to drive to Denver to sell stolen handguns.
Police say they shot and killed Ildiko Freitas and Janos and Hildegard Volgyesi after Freitas argued against giving them her vehicle.
