John Knospler Junior’s Trial Date Moved

John Knospler Jr
Natrona County Sheriff’s Office

The trial for a Pennsylvania man accused of killing a man at a Natrona County nightclub has been delayed.
Thirty-three year old John Knospler Junior has had his second degree murder trial moved from the week of May 19th, to the week of September 22nd, because prosecutors say some important evidence is still being processed at the state crime lab.

Knospler has pleaded not guilty to one charge of second degree murder, in the death of 24-year old James Baldwin.

Natrona County Sheriff’s Investigators say in early October, deputies were called to Rack’s Gentleman’s Club, where they found Baldwin in the parking lot bleeding from a gunshot wound, and was later pronounced dead at the scene.

One bouncer told investigators, that he saw Baldwin go outside and lean inside a vehicle, then saw Baldwin’s body jerk twice and then fall to the ground.

The bouncer said that Knospler was the person in the car and that he drove off a short time later.

Deputies eventually found Knospler as well as a handgun inside his vehicle, and also determined through tests, that his blood alcohol content was above the legal limit at the time.

Defense attorneys say Knospler was acting in self-defense and that Baldwin punched out the driver’s side window of Knospler’s car, while Knospler was inside of it.

Knospler is free on $500,000 bond awaiting trial and could receive 20 years to life in prison if convicted.
