Trial dates have not been changed, but a hearing for motions in the case of an Aurora man accused in a fatal hit and run crash that killed an Oswego High School coach, last year in Kendall County, has been pushed back two weeks.
An order was approved Tuesday in Kendall County Court for attorneys to argue motions in limine or arguments made before a jury trial for a protective order against prejudicial questions and statements on Thursday, December 26th at 1:00 p.m in the case of 39 year-old Nehemiah Williams.
Originally, the hearing was scheduled for Thursday, December 12th. Kendall County First Asst. State's Attorney Mark Shlifka, who is prosecuting the case, said in court that William's attorney Dawn Projansky is not expected to be available on the original date set, due to another case.
In Kendall County Court in September, Judge Robert Pilmer scheduled the week of January 13th for jury selection, and trial. A final trial management date is set for January 8th in the case.
Williams is accused in the 2018 hit and run crash that killed Oswego High School Softball Coach Amanda Stanton. Her body was found at Plainfield Rd. near Plainsman Ct. on June 24th, 2018.
Williams has pleaded not guilty to Reckless Homicide, Failure to Report an Accident/Leaving the Scene and Driving While License Suspended.
Williams could waive his right to a jury.
As WSPY previously reported, evidence sent to the Illinois State Police crime lab has now been completely returned and dispersed. Attorneys have continued to complete discovery evidence ahead of trial.
