The Covington News - - Crime & courts -

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.
