An Interesting Twist of Fate?

After attorneys for Harlow Cuadra and Joseph Kerekes argued their preparation had been hampered by the dismissal of two colleagues last month... Judge Peter Paul Olszewski Jr. reluctantly postponed the trial until January 5, 2009.

Here's the interesting/odd thing... back on April 17, 2008... Assistant District Attorney Mike Melnick said that he expects his case to last about two weeks. Defense attorneys for both suspects said they expect their cases to last two to three days.

Without knowing how long it's going to take a jury to reach a decision... wouldn't it be just a little ironic if it's done around January 24th*, the second-year anniversary of the brutal slaying of Bryan Kocis?

It's certainly possible... and a little eerie.

* Note: 01/24/09 is on a Saturday, so a jury ruling is not likely to happen on the exact same date.
