St. Joseph County Circuit Judge Paul Stutesman last week accepted a defense motion that postpones the jury trial for Raymond McCann II, a Three Rivers man charged with five counts of perjury linked to the homicide of Jodi Parrack.
McCann’s attorney, James Mequio, told Stutesman Friday the defense needs more time to obtain and evaluate evidence connected to testimony McCann provided to authorities after Parrack’s body was found in a Constantine cemetery seven years ago.
McCann has been identified as a person of interest, but he has not been charged with Parrack’s homicide. Officials have confirmed that a DNA sample he voluntarily provided does not match the crime-scene sample.
McCann was arrested in April on a perjury complaint, and remains in jail on $225,000 bond.
