Ga. woman with 5 dead spouses expects ‘09 trial
RALEIGH, N.C. — The attorney for a Georgia grandmother accused of trying to hire someone to kill one of her five dead husbands in North Carolina said he doesn’t expect a trial to begin until 2009.
Attorney Charles Parnell said Friday that his client, 76year-old Betty Neumar, won’t receive a court date until next year. Parnell said he and Stanly County prosecutors still have thousands of pages of court documents to examine.
Neumar is charged with solicitation to commit firstdegree murder in the 1986 death of her fourth husband, Harold Gentry. She was arrested in May.
Neumar was released from a North Carolina jail on Thursday after posting $ 300,000 bond, angering some relatives of her late husbands.
Parnell said Neumar isn’t barred from leaving the state and expects her to travel to Georgia to visit relatives.
