Dec. 1: david snelgroveA hearing is scheduled at 1:30 p.m. in Courtroom 401 before Circuit Judge Dennis Craig on two new issues relating to the scheduled re-sentencing of convicted double-murderer David Snelgrove, who killed Glyn Fowler, 84, and his wife, Vivian, 79, on Bannbury Lane in Palm Coast in late June 2000. The Supreme Court has ordered Snelgrove-re-sentenced because twice before, non-unanimous juries recommended that he be killed. That was deemed unconstitutional. Juries must now be unanimous. Before getting to that stage, a hearing must determine a) whether Craig has a conflict of interest as a sitting judge, since he was working in the State Attorney's office at the time Snelgrove was originally prosecuted (though not in the homicide division), and b) whether Snelgrove should have an evidentiary hearing about his mental capacities to be even eligible for the death penalty. The hearing will decide whether that evidentiary hearing is due. Snelgrove is expected to be present. At the Flagler County courthouse.
