Jeremy Webster appeared in court for a hearing Tuesday morning where his trial date was set for April 8.

In January, the court entered a not guilty plea on behalf of Webster and set his trial for June 12, but it was delayed.

Webster is charged with murder, attempted murder and assault for the violent June 2018 altercation that left 13-year-old Vaughn Bigelow Jr. dead. The boy’s mother, Meghan Bigelow, and brother, Asa Bigelow, were seriously wounded in the attack.

  Alleged love triangle to teacher's death | Man who pulled trigger to appear in jury trial The jury trial will begin on Tuesday for a man, involved in an alleged love triangle, charged with murdering a Norfolk school teacher. Edward Shaw, 72, is accused of working with his ex-lover, 23-year-old Teniqu Cushman, to plan a shooting that left 50-year-old Caroline Hendrix dead in 2017. Hendrix was a local teacher at Oceanair Elementary School, and she was an active member in her church community. Norfolk police said this case was of mistaken identity, and that Shaw and Cushman's planned target was another man.In court, Cushman said that she met 72-year-old Edward Shaw online, but they later met in person at the Oceanfront.

A third child, Cooper Bigelow, was uninjured and received credit from investigators for helping law enforcement identify the suspect and his vehicle by unlocking his mom’s phone and showing them a photo she had taken moments before the shooting.

Another man, identified as John Gale, was shot while he was sitting in the car with his daughter waiting for her dentist appointment at one of the two offices near West 80th Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard.

Webster was supposed to enter a plea during a hearing last November, but at the time, Webster’s defense team asked for a 60-day continuance in the proceedings – something that was met with objections from prosecutors and the victims.

Trial to begin for body donation facility accused of fraud

  Trial to begin for body donation facility accused of fraud Opening statements are scheduled Monday at a civil trial against a now-closed Phoenix body donation facility accused of mishandling donated human remains. A lawsuit alleges the Biological Resource Center of Arizona claimed the bodies would be used for medical research, when in some cases it knew the remains would be used in destructive military testing.It also alleges families, who were promised the cremated remains of relatives, received boxes purporting to contain their relatives' remains but later discovered the bodies were still at the facility or sold to third parties.

The judge ultimately agreed to push the arraignment back to January. At that hearing, he was expected to enter a plea, but the defense asked the judge to delay the arraignment again and set a new hearing to address motions related to the mental health of their client.

During testimony at a preliminary hearing in October 2018, detectives recounted an interview with Cooper Bigelow, who told police that Webster became angry at Meghan Bigelow when she tried to pull over for an emergency vehicle on Sheridan.

Webster is accused of following the Bigelow family’s car into the parking lot of the Cedarwood Square Office Complex at 5150 W. 80th Ave. and opening fire on the family. He is accused of shooting Vaughn Bigelow Jr. “execution-style” and then driving away in his Toyota Corolla. Prosecutors said Webster went to a Home Depot 30 minutes after the shooting to buy a saw, and went back to work for a brief period of time.

Webster was taken into custody on Interstate 25 near Castle Rock the afternoon of the shooting and was apparently headed back home to Colorado Springs.

According to an arrest affidavit released this summer, Webster admitted to the attack and said he had mental health issues and had changed medication that day. A psychiatrist later confirmed to investigators that Webster was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and had been prescribed an anti-depressant and anti-psychotic.
