Huggett Trial Delayed
The trial for Kyle Huggett of Danbury, schedule to begin Monday, has been pushed back. The former Minneapolis firefighter is accused of shooting and killing John Peach, 29, in Rural Danbury in January of 2008.
The defense for Huggett argued last week in Burnett County Court that threatening calls left by Peach on Huggett’s phone are evidence that Hugget acted in self defense. The phones of Hugget, Peach, and Huggett’s girlfriend have been sent to the state crime lab.
In July, Huggett pleaded not guilty to the charges. Police reports indicate Huggett shot Peach twice in the chest after an apparent dispute between the two men, that was fuel by text messages.
