Trial Update: Vincent Basciano

There is still no trial date for Vincent Basciano. The U.S. Court of Appeals has to rule on various issues in his case and until it does so there is no way for Brooklyn Judge Nicholas Garaufis to set up a time for trial in the death penalty case. Basciano has a couple of intriguing issues on appeal, one being whether the current indictment doesn't violate the Double Jeopardy rule. Some legal sources think that part of the appeal could go Basciano's way, forcing the government to either drop the case or come up with a new indictment.
