Trial date to be vacated in deadly hit & run case
EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - A trial date set for late October will likely be vacated.
Court records show the defense for Mateo Rodriguez filed a motion to vacate the trial date, and the state does not object.
A judge is taking it under advisement, and a hearing is set for October 3 to discuss it.
Rodriguez is charged in the death of 33-year-old Megan Schaefer.
Police say he stole a car and ran over Schaefer at a gas station at East Franklin Street and Weinbach Avenue.
His charges include murder.
