Jerome Kowalski's Pre-Eliminary Exam Postponed...Again

Jerome Kowalksi, the man charged with murdering his brother Richard, 65, and his sister-in-law Brenda, 58, in their Oceola Township home, is facing another postponement of his pre-eliminary exam, which was delayed the first time back on May 22.

This is what the Livingingston briefs in the Detroit Free Press reports today:

Countywide: Murder hearing adjourned

The preliminary exam for a Warren man accused of murdering his brother and sister-in-law in their Oceola Township home has been adjourned again for further discovery evidence to be presented to the defense attorney and pending lab analysis. Jerome Walter Kowalski, 61, was expected to appear before 53rd District Judge Carol Sue Reader today. The exam has been rescheduled for Sept. 11 to determine if there's enough evidence to bind the case over for trial in Livingston Circuit Court. Kowalski is charged with two counts of murder in the deaths of his brother, Richard Kowalski, 65, and his sister-in-law, Brenda Kowalski, 58. He faces life in prison if convicted.

I remain unconvinced that Kowalski was behind the murder of his brother and his sister-in-law, due to the unusual nature of the police's unwillingness to release the autopsy results that have still never been released to the public since May 6.
