Next murder trial delayed for man already sentenced to death
CANTON, Ohio (AP) — A man already sentenced to death for killing three women in suburban Cleveland won’t face trial as scheduled this week over the shooting deaths of an Ohio couple.
The Repository in Canton reports the Stark County trial for 47-year-old George Brinkman, of Plain Township, has been delayed until Sept. 30 to give his lawyers more time to receive information from expert witnesses.
He has pleaded not guilty in the June 2017 shooting deaths of 71-year-old Rogell “Gene” John and 64-year-old Roberta “Bobbi” John at their Lake Township home, where he was house-sitting.
They were killed less than a day after the three women in North Royalton — 42-year-old Suzanne Taylor, and her daughters, 21-year-old Taylor Pifer and 18-year-old Kylie Pifer — were killed. Brinkman pleaded guilty in those three slayings.
