Trial Pushed Back in Superior Murder Case

The trial has been pushed back for one of five co-defendants charged in the shooting death of a 20-year-old Superior man. 

20-year-old Dallas Robinson will now head to trial on June 7.  This is the fourth time that Robinson’s trial has been rescheduled. 

Robinson is charged with party to the crime of felony murder for his role in the shooting death of Garth Velin in Superior in September of 2014. 

Velin was shot in the chest by 19-year-old Chance Andrews during what police call a failed robbery attempt. 

Earlier this week, Robinson requested a new attorney. A new attorney would  mean a continuance of at least 90 days for a new trial.    The judge initially denied the request for the delay, but has now approved a continuance to give Robinson’s attorney time to prepare for trial. 

Robinson will be the last of the five co-defendants to head to trial.  

Teah Phillips will face a jury on May 10.
