A man who carried out a shooting spree in Kalamazoo three years ago is headed to prison for life. Jason Brian Dalton killed six people and seriously injured two others while driving around the Kalamazoo area on February 20, 2016.
Jury selection for the trial of Jason Dalton will begin in Kalamazoo January 3rd. Dalton is accused of shooting six people to death in February 2016 while he was a driver for the ridesharing service Uber. Two others were seriously injured.
A defendant has a right to a speedy trial, but any number of factors can slow the process down. Western Michigan University Thomas M. Cooley Law School Professor Tonya Krause-Phelan says those change the time frame for a “speedy trial.”
