A former chauffeur is getting ready for a longer journey through the justice system.
Connecticut law entitles people who have been arrested and held to a trial within eight months of arrest but delays for actions by the defense can add to that, the Greenwich Times reports. Trujillo's public defender has taken issue with several delays the state says the defense should be accountable for, the paper reports.
Trujillo, 47, of Bridgeport, was Kissel's long-time chauffeur. He pleaded not guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit murder.
Kissel's body was found in his Greenwich mansion in 2006. He had been tied up and stabbed repeatedly. The body was found just days before Kissel's sentencing in a fraud case involving millions of dollars.
