GRANTSVILLE – Attorneys are close to reaching a “resolution” in the case of a now 17-year old boy accused of killing four members of his family in Grantsville over a year ago. Attorneys for both sides asked for a few more weeks to hammer out the specifics of a possible plea deal.
The status hearing for Colin Jeffery “CJ” Haynie lasted only minutes over WebEx. Haynie said very little as his attorney, Richard Van Wagoner, told the judge both sides were very close to reaching a resolution. Van Wagoner stated his office would finish his proposal for a deal, soon.
Tooele County Attorney Chief Deputy Gary Searle says, “Mister Van Wagoner is going to put it in writing. He indicated he was hoping to do it today. He said, during the hearing, he would get it done this week and present it to us.”
However, Searle says the defense team is only going to propose a framework of the deal. And both sides are going to have to negotiate on the specifics of the deal. Searle has spoken with the defense attorneys, but is not at liberty to discuss any of the specifics, yet.
