Hubbard's Court Appearance Delayed (2018-09-10 15:28:53)

Jessie R. Hubbard’s court appearance for his charge of the murder of Diane Goss has been postponed.

The Ashe Post and Times reports that Hubbard was expected to appear in Ashe County District Court on September 6th.

According to the report, the delay is because the state is currently deciding whether they should handle the case themselves, or leave it to the Ashe County District Attorney's office.

The uncertainty meant that Hubbard could not yet be put in front of a jury and start the judicial process.

Hubbard is now expected to appear before the court on September 27th to be indicted, and his trial will likely begin in November.
