Roeder trial moved to January 11th

Scott Roeder's trial has been moved up to January 11th, according to the AP

WICHITA, Kan. - The trial of the man accused in the killing of Wichita abortion provider George Tiller has been rescheduled to Jan. 11.

The Sedgwick County District Attorney's office announced the new date Wednesday. Scott Roeder's trial had previously been scheduled to begin Jan. 25.

Roeder is accused of shooting Tiller on May 31 as the doctor was ushering during Sunday morning services at his Wichita church.

The 51-year-old suspect is charged with first-degree murder and aggravated assault.



  1. Let's get on with it. "Justice delayed is justice denied."

    I want to go to his trial to see all the Newman/OR dittoheads attending. At George Tiller's trial on trumped up charges, one woman sat there knitting like Madame LaFarge. Roeder was with them.

    Ample precedent for OR. While being tried for shooting and trying to murder George, clinic arsonist Shelly Shannon had her rooting section from OR in the audience. Paul Hill accompanied them, then went home to Florida to murder a 74-year-old unarmed doctor's escort and shoot the escort's 68-year-old wife. Then he reloaded his pump shotgun and assassinated the doctor.

    Don Spitz "ministered" to Hill before Jeb Bush refused a clemency request and he was put to death. He also "ministered" to John Salvi after he killed two Boston clinic receptionists.

  2. Spitz is the "christian" fundy representative of the American Taliban. One wishes he would move to Afghanistan and content himself with beating women who allowed their hair to be seen. I understand that life expectancy gets shorter and shorter all the time there, and I sure wouldn't miss that lunatic.

  3. I have read that all the pro-life extremists came out for Shelly Shannon's trial.They sat in the courtroom together, probably went out for coffee and discussed the trial and waved at picketers presumably standing outside the courthouse. Three months after this Shannon three ring circus Paul Hill shot the doctor in Florida. Now in Wichita we have Scott already his 3 ring circus has begun with the steady line of pro-life visitors, phone calls to pro-lifers, corresponding with pro-lifers and Scott even mailing pro-life literature to people from his jail cell. Will history repeat itself will another doctor be assisnated 2 or 3 months after Scotts trial. Scott has open acess to nearly everyone on the witness list.

  4. I wouldn't call them "pro-life" since they go out and kill people ...

    I would imagine keeping track of the crazies is why they were taking all our id's and names at the prelim. Hill's time in Wichita wasn't just at the courtroom. He joined Operation Rescue West and several others to protest outside Nola Foulston's house during Shannon's trial. He tried to do a media circus event that some pro-choicers stopped.

    The distance between killers and militant organizations is incredibly small.
