'Jail incident' barred from trial
A jail "incident" between murder suspect Andrew Condon and jail personnel will not be allowed at trial, when Condon is tried for the 2012 murder of Jonathon Rubin of Danforth.
Iroquois County judge Gordon Lustfeldt has granted a defense motion request to bar the prosecution from referring to last year's incident in the county jail.
Attorney Ed Glazur Jr. filed the motion in August, saying the incident bebtween his client and the jail employees "was irrelevant" and would deny Condon a fair trial.
A jury trial is scheduled for November 25. Condon is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in connection with the fatal shooting of the 27-year-old Rubin at the Shell gas station in Gilman where Rubin worked.
