HI FI HEARING POSTPONED

SHARE HI FI HEARING POSTPONED

A scheduling conflict among attorneys has forced the postponement of a hearing on whether a new death warrant should be issued for condemned Hi Fi killer William Andrews.

The hearing in 2nd District Court had been set for Tuesday, but now will be held before Judge Ronald O. Hyde on July 5, a scheduling clerk said Monday.The Utah Supreme Court earlier this month rejected Andrews' appeal of his conviction for the 1974 torture-killings of three people during a robbery at the Hi Fi Shop in Ogden.

The hearing was ordered to give defense attorneys an opportunity to show why a new death warrant should not be imposed.

A new date of execution would have to be more than 30 days, but less than 60 days, after the hearing.

Andrews' co-defendant, Pierre Dale Selby, was executed by lethal injection at Utah State Prison in 1987.
