NEW HAVEN SUPERIOR COURT
2010 - January 27 - The prosecution has added a charge of felony murder.
This would allow a jury to convict Clark of killing Annie
Le even if the death happened unintentionally in the
process of committing another felony.
(If a jury concludes Le's death was unintentional, the
prosecution can still get a conviction if it shows that
Clark killed her in the course of another major crime,
such as kidnapping, robbery or rape.)
Raymond Clark waived his right to a probable cause
hearing, at which prosecutors would have had to show
that they had enough evidence to proceed.
Raymond Clark III is still being held in jail on $3 million
bail. Clark has pled Not Guilty.
Beth Merkin (Attorney for Raymond Clark) "In any hypothetical homicide,
felony murder ensures the prosecution won't get boxed in. It
provides for alternate theories to be made about the crime."
Another defense motion was granted. Judge Fasano
allowed Clark's mother's vehicle (seized during the
investigation for evidence) to be returned, but with the
proviso that the prosecution has the right to use the
car for secondary evidence should this case go to trial.
A seal remains on search and seizure warrants that
have not been released.
2010 May 6 - Judge grants motion by defense on behalf of their client Raymond
Clark III charged with the brutal murder of Annie Le.
Judge Roland Fasano granted the motion filed by the defense
requiring prosecutors to provide a bill of particulars (a routine
procedure) stating specific details of their case.
Events, information up to, and including, the trial will be posted here.
