One trial, two juries

From the NHRs Randall Beach:

Prosecutors in the Cheshire home invasion and triple murder case have filed a motion seeking a single trial for the two defendants, but with separate juries.

The motion was filed “for the purpose of sparing the remaining victim, family members and witnesses the ordeal of multiple trials, and for the purpose of judicial economy,” said State’s Attorney Michael Dearington and Senior Assistant State’s Attorney Gary Nicholson in their New Haven Superior Court writ.

Good. Glad to hear the intention is to avoid multiple trials. Waiting two years is already far too long and unnecessary IMO.
