Trial Date Set for Rumsey in Jose Rincon's Death

Posted By on Mon, May 26, 2008 at 6:44 PM

When the Tucson Weekly first talked with the parents of Jose Rincon, the 14-year-old who died in January while riding his bicycle with a friend, Jose and Adriana Rincon said they would work to remind the court and Glenda Rumsey--the woman accused of killing their son--that he was loved by many and would not be forgotten.

At Rumsey's May 14 pre-trial hearing, more than 130 people filled Judge Richard Fields' courtroom. Rumsey faces charges of second-degree murder, DUI and fleeing the scene of a hit-and-run after she allegedly went off the road and hit two bicyclists, Jose and his friend Oscar.

At the pre-trial hearing, Judge Fields set the trial date for Oct. 14, with a backup date of Jan. 6, in case the defense and prosecutors needed more time. He did warn both, however, that he wanted them to be ready by Oct. 14 and hoped they did not take advantage of the Jan. 6 date.
