Defense Experts Want to Examine Little Girl’s Body
Motion by Zeigler’s Attorney
Trenor’s Attorney May Also Join MotionÂ
Prosecutors in the Riley Sawyers case have asked the judge to schedule a hearing on Jan. 3rd in order to hear the defense’s request to have the stepfather, Royce Zeigler’s experts examine the little girl’s body.
Riley’s mother, Kimberly Trenor and stepfather Zeigler were both charged with Capital Murder on December 12th by the Galveston County Grand Jury in Galveston, Texas. Their original bail of 350,000 was raised to 750,000.
Trenor’s attorney, Tommy Stickler, said that he may also request permission for his experts to examine Riley’s body unless the prosecutor makes autopsy records available. According to Stickler the prosecutor has refused to release the cause of death.
Riley’s family, her father, Robert Sawyers and his mother, Sheryl, are back in Mentor, Ohio where Riley was born and lived there until her mother Kimberly took Riley to Texas last summer. Kimberly had an online relationship with Royce Zeigler. They married in June and settled in Spring, Texas.
Friction seems to already be developing between the defense teams and the prosecutor’s office.
