RENO, Nev. — The trial of the man accused of slashing his wife to death and shooting the judge who was hearing their divorce will begin as scheduled Oct. 1, but a few details remain undetermined, including whether he will pursue a defense of not guilty by reason of insanity.
Prosecutors and attorneys for Darren Mack met for about 30 minutes Friday with Judge Douglas Herndon in his chamber at Washoe District Court, then Herndon outlined the gist of the meeting in open court.
