Ikegwuonu trial on hold


The trial for Eagles cornerback Jack Ikegwuonu is on hold as prosecutors call an out-of-state witness to the stand, according to the Daily Chronicle.

As you undoubtedly know by now, Ikegwuonu was charged with residential burglary and criminal trespassing for allegedly breaking into a DeKalb, Illinois townhouse with his brother and possibly attempting to steal an Xbox.

DeKalb County Assistant State’s Attorney Victor Escarcida said the trial is scheduled to resume July 16 at 10 a.m. when a former tenant of the townhouse will arrive from California.

Per the report, two witnesses were called to the stand yesterday -- the Police Sgt. who fingerprinted the scene and a fingerprint examiner. The prints from the Ikegwuonu brothers and prints from the Xbox could not be compared because of environmental factors like dust or wind.

"The (fingerprint) lifts contained did not have significant characteristics that would allow me to compare them to the cards," said fingerprint examiner Edward Rottman, according to the article.

So no more Ikegwuonu updates until next week it looks like.
