Austin/Appeal of boy, 14, who killed teacher is delayed by late transcript
The appeal for a 14-year-old boy found delinquent in the shooting death of Lyle teacher Sharon Turnbull has been delayed.
The boy's attorney, Bruce Hanley, said he requested a continuance of the appeal hearing scheduled Tuesday because of a delay in receiving the trail transcript.
He said his brief is now due Oct. 1, after which the state will submit its response.
Turnbull, 33, was shot through a screen as she was sitting in the living room of her home Aug. 6, 1982.
The boy was found delinquent in February and remanded to the commissioner of corrections for an undetermined length of time.
