DETROIT (KDKA) — The trial of Allegheny County Controller Chelsa Wagner has been pushed back to Thursday in Michigan.
She was set to go on trial today for an incident involving her husband at a Detroit hotel earlier this year.
However, the courtroom ran out of potential jurors this morning with many members of the jury pool not showing up because of wintry weather.
In the Wagner case, they ran out of potential jurors, because many pool members didn’t show up due to the weather. Judge asked them, with apologies, to return Thursday. Then, he says, the trial likely will wrap up Monday.
