Sheley was also in court today (12/4) in Galesburg, IL for a case management hearing in the Ronald Randall murder case. I will put up an entry from this hearing later, there was a lot of legal jargon thrown around that I need to research and look at the motions discussed in the hearing before I can transcribe my notes. (Yes, I wrote it, but I don't know what all of it means) LOL

Nicholas Sheley (NS) is scheduled to testify for the defense in his brother Joshua's trial on Wednesday, December 9, in Whiteside County. We'll see if Nick follows just never know with him. Joshua Sheley (JS), of Rock Falls, is charged with concealment of a homicidal death and obstructing justice. JS is alleged to have helped his brother, NS, hide the body of Russell Reed, 93, Sterling, who was killed in late June 2008.

NS is charged with killing Reed before he allegedly went on to kill seven other people in two states over the next week. Sheley will stand trial for the death of Ronald Randall, 65, of Galesburg first. That trial is tenatively scheduled Late Summer or Early Fall 2010.
