Murder Suspect Released from Pretrial Incarceration

A man charged with murder in LaPorte County has been released from pretrial incarceration. LaPorte County Prosecutor Bob Szilagyi issued a release today stating an Order on Motion to Suppress was entered by Judge Kathleen Lang on Monday, which bars the state from calling to the witness stand any witness who has invoked, at trial, their 5th amendment right against self-incrimination. Szilagyi says this severely limited the state's evidence in the case of Indiana v. Brian Taylor. Taylor was released as today because of his request on April 10th for a speedy trial, which must take place within 70 calender days, and today is the 70th day. He says if the state had not released Taylor, the case itself would be discharged and Taylor could not be brought to trial. Szilagyi says they have requested that the Court authorize an interlocutory appeal of the Order on Motion to Suppress.

Meanwhile an investigation is being conducted by Indiana State Police into allegations several investigators may have improperly overheard conversations between Taylor and his attorney while the two occupied an interrogation room in the Michigan City Police Department. Taylor was charged in March with the death of 24 year old Simone Bush whose body was discovered during a welfare check at a residence in the 600 block of County Line Road.
