Delays in Pasco murder case

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. -- More delays in the court case of a Pasco man accused of killing his pregnant ex-girlfriend, 19-year-old Shenay Greenough, last April.

Kurtis Chapman was supposed to undergo a mental evaluation, to see if he had diminished capacity due to drug use. However, only half the evaluation was finished. The rest will be done in the coming weeks.

The victim's mother says she is frustrated with all the delays. Christine Sullivan told KNDU, "as time goes on this not easier for me, this harder for me because the reality of my daughter being gone is coming on. It's getting a little bit harder."

The prosecution has asked for more time to review the results after the evaluation is complete.

Chapman faces 2nd degree murder and manslaughter for the death of the Greenough's unborn child.
