Trial date pushed back for murder of Princeville couple

Local News

The trial date for two men accused of killing a Princeville couple in November has been pushed back.

21-year-old Jose Ramirez and 20-year-old Matthew Roberts face two counts of first-degree murder in connection with the deaths of Susan Brill De Ramirez and Antonio Ramirez Barron.

Police say the two used a bat and a knife to kill the couple, who were the parents of Jose Ramirez.

In court Thursday morning Roberts’ public defender filed a motion to appoint a psychological expert for his client, while Ramirez’s attorney is seeking a psychiatric examination.

Both men are due back in court for a motion hearing Jan. 22.
