Local News

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – The trial has been postponed and that no new date has been set yet for Michael Colucci, according to spokesperson Heather Speizman.

Communications Director for the SC Attorney General’s Office Robert Kittle stated that 120-150 jurors will be from Berkeley County.

On July 30, 2015, Berkeley County Sheriff Duane Lewis asked SLED to investigate, and according the affidavit, several witnesses told investigators that Michael Colucci said Sara hung herself with the garden hose while he was still sitting in the vehicle about 20 feet away. 

But the affidavit states medical evidence showed Sara was not strangled with the garden hose, and other evidence collected at the scene did not support Michael Colucci’s version of what happened, and indicated there was a fight or struggle.

The trial got continued on Wednesday. Colucci’s attorney moved for the delay because a necessary expert witness is unavailable, so jury selection did not begin today.

The new tentative trial date is November 26th.
