A new trial date has been set for one of three Miamisburg murder suspects.
Chaz Gillilan’s trial has been pushed back to Aug. 24 in the 2018 fatal home invasion shooting of Noah Kinser, 18, according to Montgomery County Common Pleas Court records.
Judge Richard Skelton delayed the trial after ordering the Miami Valley Regional Crime Laboratory to forward DNA evidence regarding Gillilan to his attorney, according to court records.
Gillilan, 31, of Coshocton County, is among four charged in the Dec. 30, 2018, killing of Kinser that police have said is drug-related.
Kinser, a Miamisburg High School graduate, died in his Miamisburg apartment on North First Street in what was the city’s first homicide since 2011, police said.
Skelton earlier this month ordered the crime lab in Dayton to forward the DNA evidence to a Fairborn lab within 30 days.
Defense attorney Marshall Lachman asked for an order for the evidence to be sent within 14 days, records show.
Lachman sought the order after the crime lab failed to comply with a subpoena regarding the evidence, according to court records.
Gillilan faces 20 charges, including six murder counts. He also faces four felonious assault charges, four robbery, two aggravated burglary and other counts, court records show.
Also facing murder charges is Jason B. Churchill, 32, of Moraine, and Daniel Matthew Simone, 29, of Englewood. All three remain in the Montgomery County Jail, according to its website.
A fourth defendant, Dante English, 38, of Cincinnati, was indicted on arson, tampering with evidence, possession of criminal tools and insurance fraud in connection to the case.
Not guilty pleas have been entered for all four defendants.
