Guam – One of the nine defendants named in the DOC murder case is seeking his release while another has yet to be arraigned.
The second group of DOC detainees indicted on charges related to the murder of fellow detainee Manson Ernest appeared in court this morning. Jeremiah Isezaki and Andrew Rios Jr. were among those.
During the proceeding Isezaki motioned the court for his release to allow him to attend the rosairies, mass and funeral of his mother who passed away yesterday.
In addition to this he is also asking the court to release him from local custody so that he may begin receiving credit for time served in his federal case.
Meanwhile Andrew Rios Jr. has yet to answer to the charges of criminal sexual conduct. He is accused of digitally penetrating Ernest prior to his death.
An arraignment hearing has been set for May 5th.
Isezaki, Rios and co-defendants A-Last Simiron, Albert Santos and Vimson Menisio are scheduled to appear for a hearing on May 1st.
While the other defendants Marvin Rechim, Benster Benjamin, Isler Miller and Jimmy Moses Hadely have a hearing on April 30th.
