Darryl Lierman appeared in Antelope County District Court on Wednesday along with his attorney Ron Temple.
Judge Mark Johnson sustained a motion to endorse witnesses from the state with no objection from the defense.
Temple pointed out that the defense would have a problem because of the number of witnesses endorsed on the information. He said that it would be necessary to take all of their depositions.
The defense filed a motion to compel earlier this month. Temple asked that the hearing on the matter be continued and said he was willing to file another motion pursuant to State v. Trammell regarding documentation of mental health. He suggested they bring both issues to the court at that time. The hearing was continued for December 16 at 1 p.m
The defense also filed a motion for discovery of scientific testing. Temple asked for information regarding any testing that has been done by the state along with a list of everything that had been sent to be tested. The court sustained the motion with no objection to the state. Defense will be provided with evidence within 10 days and any further reports that the state receives must be also sent within 10 days.
The state and defense also agreed to communicate and take depositions in January. Pretrial remains on Jan. 27, 2016, and his trial date is March 14.
Lierman was remanded to the custody of the Antelope County Sheriff, pending posting bond.
