Michelle Young Case Update

This update is slightly dated, but I thought it might be helpful for those searching for news about Jason Young.  Jason is currently in the Wake County jail awaiting trial for the 2006 murder of his pregnant wife, Michelle Marie Fisher Young.  Young was indicted by a Wake County grand jury on December 14, 2009, and arrested in Brevard the same day.  Since that time, two hearings have been continued.  A Rule 24 hearing originally scheduled for March 18, 2010 — at which time the district attorney was to have notified the court as to whether or not the death penalty would be sought — was continued.  The case was again continued on June 17 with the delay attributed to the state’s need for more time to sort through all of the evidence against Jason Young and turn everything over to Young’s defense team.  The next court date is August 26, at which time, the prosecution must without further delay present the court with their intentions regarding the death penalty.
