A judge will not alter the trial schedule for accused quadruple murderer Christian Nielsen, but his lawyer says Nielsen’s dramatic weight loss could still push the trial back a week or so.
Nielsen’s trial was supposed to start on October 10th.
But Nielsen, who is 6 feet tall, has dropped to 106 pounds since he stopped eating.
His lawyer, Ron Hoffman says the weight loss has been so severe that it’s affecting Nielsen’s thinking.
On Thursday, a judge granted temporary guardianship to Nielsen’s father, who will decide whether to allow a feeding tube for his son.
Nielsen is charged with killing and dismembering three women at the black bear bed &: breakfast in Newry last summer.
He’s also accused of killing a fourth victim…an Arkansas man who was burned and dismembered miles away near Upton.
