Jury Trial For Kay's Case Finally Set

Bicyclist Jose Menendez tracks bicyclist deaths and looked into the court case related to the motorist who killed bicyclist Kayoko Ishizuka near USF in 2010.

A pretrial hearing for the motorist, Shawn Burton, was scheduled to start last week before Judge Steven Scott Stephens in courtroom CR18 in the Courthouse Annex.

Jose says the jury trial is scheduled to start at 8 a.m. on Monday, June 11 before the same judge in the same courtroom. (That's 1 year, 8 months, and 17 days after Kay's death!) A charge status link shows that he's charged with "leaving the scene of a crash with death" -- a 1st degree felony.
