Allgier’s June trial date canceled
First Published Mar 21 2012 04:34 pm • Last Updated Mar 21 2012 10:58 pm

A trial date for Curtis Allgier that had been set for June has been canceled because experts need more time to evaluate the man accused of killing a Department of Corrections officer in 2007.

During a Wednesday afternoon hearing, 3rd District Judge Paul Maughan struck the trial date and set a status conference for June.

Algier’s attorneys, Richard Gale and Dusty Kawai, say psychological and psychiatric experts still need to evaluate Allgier, something that has been delayed because of funding issues in the case. With those issues now resolved, attorneys on both sides believe a trial could happen as early as October.

Algier, 32, is charged with capital murder for allegedly killing 60-year-old Stephen Anderson on June 25, 2007. According to charges, Allgier shot Anderson with his own gun after the officer had unshackled him for an MRI scan at a Salt Lake City medical clinic.
