A Reckless Homicide case in Kendall County hit a snag on Tuesday morning as evidence analysis from the state is expected to be outstanding for another couple of months.
In Kendall County Court, Nehemiah Williams of Aurora appeared before Judge Robert Pilmer on Tuesday. Williams is accused in the 2018 hit and run crash that killed Oswego High School Softball Coach Amanda Stanton.
He has pleaded not guilty to Reckless Homicide, Failure to Report an Accident/Leaving the Scene and Driving While License Suspended.
Attorney's had hoped to have evidence that was sent to the Illinois State Crime Lab returned first in January and then Tuesday when the return did not occur.
Kendall County First Asst. State's Attorney Mark Shlifka said that processing is taking longer than expected.
Williams' attorney Dawn Projansky indicated that counsels will do a cross file check between parties for outstanding discovery.
Judge Pilmer also asked the Kendall County State's Attorney's Office to make Stanton's family aware of the hold up.
Meanwhile, court records show a court order was agreed to by all involved parties on February 15th allowing another bond modification to allow Williams to attend outpatient mental health treatment as prescribed. He is required to submit a letter from a treatment professional to court services.
In January, the state's attorney's office objected to a bond modification for Williams to be allowed travel to find work, however, it was approved by Judge Pilmer.
Williams is due back in court on May 16th at 9:00 a.m.
