Trial reset for second suspect in Willow Creek murder
WILLOW CREEK - The case of a Willow Creek murder was brought to the courthouse again Monday, after one suspect was acquitted the week before.
Limmie Curry III was seen in court for a hearing for his case. Curry is one of two suspects in the killing of William Billie Reid.
The murder occurred in 2010 at a marijuana grow off Highway 299.
Both suspects were accused of shooting, burning, and then burying Reid’s body and both suspects pled not guilty.
The other suspect, Eddie Lee, was acquitted of all charges on Friday after a Superior Court judge ruled there was not enough evidence for the case to go to the jury.
Curry’s parents were present at the courthouse Monday to defend their son’s innocence.
"I can't fathom it but I know if somebody talk to me and come and listen to Limmie and look at the case and see everything, they will see my son don’t have nothing to do with this, what so ever,” Stephanie Curry, mother of Limmie, said.
In the courtroom Monday, a motion was made to continue the case on Curry against Reid. The trial has been reset for January of next year.
