Defense requests more time for trial



The jury trial of a Columbus man charged with killing four people last year in Waynesville has been postponed until Oct. 27.

Samuel E. Sallee, 56, was charged in December with four counts of murder in connection with the May 11, 2013, shooting deaths of Katheryn M. Burton, 53; Thomas W. Smith, 39; Aaron T. Cross, 41; and Shawn L. Burton, 40.

Continuance of the trial, which had been scheduled to begin June 23, was requested Monday in Bartholomew Circuit Court by court-appointed attorneys David Nowak and Christopher Clerc.
