Carbondale ex-cop’s trial postponed
A Lackawanna County judge Monday postponed the trial of former Carbondale Patrolman Francis Schulze for the off-duty shooting death of a Fell Twp. man until March 20.
Mr. Schulze, 26, had been scheduled to stand trial Jan. 17 on first- and third-degree murder and other charges in the Feb. 2 killing of Joe Molinaro, 34, after a confrontation outside the officer’s home.
Judge Terrence R. Nealon set the new trial date in a scheduling order issued after the final pre-trial conference with prosecution and defense attorneys Monday.
