POMEROY — The trial for alleged gas station robbery accomplice Marcy Craig has been continued, again.
The trial was scheduled to begin on Tuesday morning, but instead council for the state and defendant agreed to continue the trial due to the death of the defendant’s father.
Judge I. Carson Crow — who has recused himself from the case — heard motions made by the defense after counsel for the state, Colleen Williams, agreed to waive any conflict for the purpose of the hearing.
Crow accepted the waiver of speedy trial filed by defense council William Eachus and signed by Craig.
Also granted was a motion for temporary release to allow Craig to attend services for her late father. She will be required to wear an ankle monitor while out of jail and will be required to return to the jail following the services.
Craig, 37, of Long Bottom, was charge with three counts of aggravated robbery of allegedly serving as an accomplice to her brother, Alex Craig, in three armed robberies in March and April 2012.
The three counts of aggravated robbery alleged against the defendant occurred on March 30 at the TNT Pitstop in Syracuse, April 2 at the TNT Pitstop in Chester, and April 10 at the 124 Mart near Pomeroy.
Alex Craig plead guilty to three counts of aggravated robbery in August, and was sentenced in late November to 30 years in prison for his role in the crimes.
A new trial date for Marcy Craig has not been set as a judge will need to be appointed to hear the case.
Judge Dale Crawford had been scheduled to preside over the trail this week, but according to a court official is unavailable in the coming weeks. It is unclear if Crawford or another judge will be appointed to the case and at what time the appointment will be made.
