DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ore. -- Murder suspect Kevin Adams will return to the courtoom Friday morning as his defense attempts to apply two new state laws to their client.
Adam's attorney, Katherine Berger, filed the request for Friday's hearing. She said both new laws have implications on her client's case. Berger said the defense can't file any motions moving forward until it's determined whether Adams will be tried as an adult.
As KEZI 9 News has reported, Adams' defense has tried to get his case turned over to the state's juvenile justice system. The judge, in that previous request, denied the defense's request.
KEZI 9 News will be in court Friday morning for Adam's hearing.
