Murder Trial Delayed Again

(Michigan City) -  A Michigan City murder trial has been delayed yet again.  A continuance was granted Thursday in the jury trial of Hakim Qualls, who is accused of shooting Dareon Brown in December of 2018.


According to reports, Qualls’ defense revealed that he is recovering from three bullet wounds, suffered recently as possible retaliation for his alleged crime.  Attorneys contended that he is physically unable to stand trial.  With Qualls nursing a wounded hand, foot, and hip, Judge Michael Bergerson moved the trial from late September to early December.


Qualls has been out of jail for about eight months. His first jury trial was derailed last year, when a police witness divulged information that was inadmissible.
