Homicide case delayed

July 14, 1998

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A Chambersburg man charged with criminal homicide was granted a continuance until the September trial term during an appearance Monday in Franklin County, Pa., Court.

Kevin J. Barrett, of 627 Siloam Road, told Judge John R. Walker he recently fired his private attorney. His new lawyer, Public Defender Robert J. Trambley, asked for a continuance until the November trial term, but Walker denied the request.

Barrett is charged in the Sept. 7, 1997, shooting death of Wendy Schuchman outside Siggy's bar on Norland Avenue.

Borough police records said they were called to the scene at 2:21 a.m. and found Schuchman and Barrett both with gunshot wounds.

The report said witnesses told police that Schuchman was shot as she was getting into her car.

Barrett shot himself in the left side, the police report alleged.

In addition to Barrett and Reid, three other homicide cases are scheduled for the September trial term, according to court records.
