Jury trial date set for accused Rush Street shooter
The man accused of shooting 25-year-old Chicago-area resident Marty LaBelle inside Rush Street in downtown Ann Arbor in the early morning hours of Oct. 27 will likely have a jury trial in March.
Zachary Finneren, 25, has been charged with six counts including assault with intent to murder, assault with a dangerous weapon and resisting arrest. Dan Geherin, Finneren’s lawyer, said at a pretrial hearing Thursday that he expects that the trial, scheduled to begin March 17, to take four to five days.
“I know there are going to be several motions that will be filed in this case,” Geherin said during the hearing.
The final pre-trial hearing, the last day for motions to be filed before the case goes before the jury, is scheduled for March 6. Washtenaw County Probate Judge Darlene O’Brien presided over the hearing Thursday.
After the hearing, Geherin declined to discuss what types of motions he expects to be filed in the case and said that he does not have any comment on the proceedings at this time.
