hohenwaldCraig Hohenwald was due in court for an omnibus hearing on Wednesday, however, for the second time in two months, the appearance is pushed back.

Kanabec County Court Administration tells Red Rock Radio that the continuance is due to Hohenwald changing his lawyer. Monticello-based attorney Gerald Paulson will represent Hohenwald.

Hohenwald, a resident of Brook Park, is charged with four counts of second degree murder, for the deaths of Larry and Lois Steenerson at their Knife Lake home on February 8th.  Each charge is punishable by up to 40 years in prison.

Hohenwald’s scheduled April appearence was also the result of a continuance.  The Kanabec County Attorney’s Office requested more time to review the details of the case in March.

The defense team of  woman charged with two counts of aiding an offender in the case, Jennifer Ann-Linn Seiberlich,  requested a motion to dismiss in March.  She is due back in court May 21st.

Count One against Seiberlich, 28, carries a penalty of 20 years imprisonment and the other carries a $5,000 fine and/or three years imprisonment.
