Notice of Intent to retry Wayne Kubsch
On Friday, the St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office filed its Notice of Intent to retry Wayne Kubsch in cause number 71D01-9812-CF-00592. This filing was required as a result of a May 30, 2017, order from the United States District Court (Northern District of Indiana, South Bend Division). The Federal Court ordered that a writ of habeas corpus would be issued for Mr. Kubsch on September 21, 2017, unless the State of Indiana had taken steps to proceed with a new trial. The filing is merely the manner of informing the Court, and beginning the process. The Notice of Intent details many of the “steps” taken by this Office to prepare to retry Wayne Kubsch. The State has also requested that the Court order Mr. Kubsch be returned to St. Joseph County “to begin assisting in his defense and preparation for trial.”
Dates for further action will be set once Mr. Kubsch is back in St. Joseph County. We will notify the media when such a date has been established
