Cody Murder Trial Set For Spring 2013
CODY, Wyo. (AP) — A tentative trial date of March 15, 2013, has been set in the first-degree murder case of a Cody man accused of stabbing his wife to death with a screwdriver.
Prosecutors have said they intend to seek the death penalty against 29-year-old Myron Friday.
An autopsy concluded that 44-year-old Julie Friday was killed by repeated stabbings from a screwdriver last February. She was found dead at her home by one of her teenage children, and Myron Friday was arrested after a daylong search.
The Associated Press reports that Cody police have said Myron Friday’s phone was found near his wife’s body, along with bloody shoe prints that appeared to match his footwear.
Friday has pleaded not guilty to the charge
