Isaiah Fowler, 14, has already spent two birthdays behind bars since he was arrested in the brutal slaying of Leila Fowler. His attorney says Fowler has maintained his innocence since Day 1, saying it was an intruder who actually murdered his sister.
The short hearing on Wednesday had both sides agreeing to take more time before setting a trial date for Isaiah Fowler in the stabbing death of his sister, 8-year-old Leila Fowler.
Here is a timeline of events leading from 8-year-old Leila Fowler’s April 27 death to the leadup to the trial of her 12-year-old brother, Isaiah Fowler.
Isaiah Fowler spoke only once, answering “yes” when a judge asked him if he agreed to waive his right to a speedy trial. He is due back in court on July 31 to set a trial date.
