Attorneys for the defense and prosecution were scheduled to appear today for a prosecution motion of pretrial discovery in the Shaun Fairman homicide case, but that proceeding was postponed to a later, udetermined date.
The 33-year-old Fairman, from Creekside, is charged with criminal homicide, two counts of aggravated assault, plus felony burglary and receiving stolen property. He’s accused of shooting to death his father-in-law, Richard Shotts, June 3rd at the home of Fairman’s estranged wife, Jessica. Shotts was there defending his daughter from a threat of violence from Fairman. After the shooting, police say Fairman went through the house, kicking in doors as Jessica hid in one room and her children and mother-in-law hid upstairs, and when Shaun Fairman kicked in the door of the room in which Jessica was hiding, she shot him. She then held him at gunpoint until police arrived.
Jury selection is scheduled for April 22nd.
