Delays in the trial against Jarrod Ramos, the man accused of killing five people at the offices of the Annapolis newspaper The Capital Gazette have been linked to health issues affecting Ramos' public defender Bill Davis, the Director of Victim Services for the State's Attorney's Office of Anne Arundel County said.
The future schedule of the trial will be discussed in the coming weeks as a long-term prognosis for Davis' health is understood.
A hearing scheduled for Monday was postponed. A judge recently extended the 60 window for Ramos to plea not guilty by reason of insanity. He has been charged with first-degree murder in all five shooting deaths.
