A Napa couple facing trial for elder abuse allegations have postponed entering a plea while attorneys consider whether a transcript of testimony should remained sealed for the duration of the trial.
Tony and Mary Heinricher face murder and elder neglect causing death counts following the death of Tony Hinricher's mother, 92-year-old Marilyn Heinricher. Marilyn Heinricher fell while in her son's front lawn and was only brought to the hospital by the couple two weeks after the incident occurred. She later died from complications caused by the fall.
The couple was indicted by a Napa County grand jury following a September hearing.
The couple's respective attorneys requested that a transcript of the grand jury hearing remain sealed, claiming the information in the hearing would jeopardize Mary and tony Heinricher's right to a fair trial.
The document will legally become public after ten days. Presiding judge Mark Boessenecker will decide whether to extend the sealing order on a hearing set for Friday.
“She was very professional, kept me completely involved and updated with everything. Awesome job done.”
“Maria stayed on top of everything with updates, etc.”
“Very good communication throughout my case. Brenda paid great attention to my case and kept me up to date.”
“Both attorneys involved were very informative and walked me through my case every setp of the way. They answered any questions and concerns I had whenever they cam up. I was very nervous and skeptical at the beginning but that quickly changed.”
