In Bronx Murder DOJ Capital Case Review Under Biden Will Not Delay SDNY Trial

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 30 – Two men are charged with conspiracy and the murder of Daquan Cooper in The Bronx on June 25, 2015.

But on November 30 a motion to join their trials together and delay it pending the Department of Justice Capital Case review of the second defendant was denied. 

 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein held the proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

 The US Attorney's office has a superceding indictment adding Kyle Mullings to Jose Rodriguez, and seemed to assume that Rodriguez' trial, set for January 19, would be delayed as they sought Capital Case review if DOJ will seek the death penalty for Mullings. (Rodriguez has already passed through and been spared by that review). 

 But Judge Hellerstein, after asking if the US Attorney would not wait for the next Administration before filing for Capital Case review, denied the US Attorney's motion to delay Rodriguez' trial.

He said it is difficult to get a trial date these days, and no one know how long the wait will become. 

   For now, Mullings is listed in PACER in the same case as Rodriguez. But that may change.

This case is US v. Rodriguez, 19-cr-779 (Hellerstein)
