4:17 p.m. Prior says he is fine with having the trial in June 2024. Nothing else in this hearing. Court is adjourned.

4:16 p.m. One of the prosecutors has an event next May, so prosecutors ask if Boyce is considering next year, June would be preferred. Blake says the state is not opposed to having the trial earlier. The months of March, April and May are problematic.

4:14 p.m. Blake has some concerns if the trial is scheduled in the fall as there could be some issues with holidays. Prior says the fall will be problematic for him. Boyce will take the requests under advisement and will set the trial date “fairly soon” after speaking with the attorneys further.

4:12 p.m. Boyce asks Prior when all the DNA will be tested. Prior says it will take 60 days from when he tests it. Prior says it hasn’t been tested yet because he needs to get with Rob Wood to set up parameters.

4:11 p.m. Prior says he’s been working well with prosecutors, and they have offered to put all of the evidence on one hard drive to make it easier for him and his experts.

4:10 p.m. Prior says he predicts the trial will take 10 to 12 weeks, including time to pick the jury, time for prosecutors and defense, and the mitigation phase. Prior asks to hold the trial in May 2024.

4:08 p.m. Boyce asks Prior when he thinks the trial should be held. Prior says he plans to call 7-8 experts to the stand and will need an entire transcript of Lori Daybell’s trial. Prior says he doesn’t want to run into discovery issues and says Chad will need time to go over the entire audio of Lori’s trial.
