Chapman hearing moved

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.-- A pasco man accused of strangling his pregnant girlfriend was in court today.

22-year-old Kurtis Chapman was charged with murder and manslaughter back in May.  But Chapman and his attorney claim his case should be dismissed after a detective eavesdropped on a jailhouse phone cell.

A Franklin County Judge moved the date of an upcoming omnibus hearing.  Chapman's trial is still scheduled to begin in September.
