Judge rules on murder case motions

From Local Sources


JASPER — The trial of a man charged in the Jan. 11 murder of Chloie E. Lubbehusen, 23, Huntingburg, will take place in Dubois County next month.

Dubois Circuit Court Judge Nathan Verkamp ruled today on a prosecution motion to push back the May 13 trial date, denying it along with a defense motion for a change of venue in the murder case against Kyle D. Schneider, 27, 2010 Lincoln Drive, Huntingburg.

During a final pretrial hearing Tuesday, the Dubois County Prosecutor’s Office noted the State wanted more time to have evidence tested in the lab.

The prosecution and defense have other motions before the court, which is why the pretrial hearing was continued to Wednesday, April 17.

Lubbehusen was found stabbed and bleeding on the porch of a residence in the 5800 block of County Road 650E near St. Anthony on Jan. 11. She later succumbed to her wounds at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center.

Police located and arrested Schneider in a garage at the scene.
