While the Commonwealth investigates whether Sergio Del Angel sent a letter to tamper with a witness in his murder case, testing on evidence at the State Crime Lab is finally being completed.
Del Angel is accused of shooting Kristopher Armstrong to death on Kenwood Drive in May of last year and his trial was postponed until November of this year after testing on evidence took longer than expected.
Commonwealth’s Attorney Lynn Pryor said Wednesday morning that an investigation is underway to determine if it was Del Angel who sent a letter that could be considered witness tampering. Del Angel’s attorney will discuss the matter with him over the next couple weeks and will also discuss motions Del Angel has personally filed with the court.
She says results of the DNA and some of ballistics evidence testing have come in and she hopes to have the rest before trial.
Del Angel will be back in court September 26th and trial is scheduled for November 19th.
