Duck trial postponed again

My condolences go out to the family of deceased Hot Springs Village dispatcher Dawna Natzke. The murder trial of Kevin Duck has once again been postponed. New trial dates will be picked on Monday, March 28. This is the fourth continuance of the trail in this matter.

There was an emergency hearing earlier today, after the defendant's legal team filed a Motion to Exclude State's Expert Testimony or in the Alternative Motion for Continuance.

Kevin Conway Duck is charged with the murder of Dawna Natzke, murder in the first degree, a class Y felony.

In the motion, the defendant alleges a file dump of telephonic records not previously disclosed on March 20, 2016, are not in their original form. He states the original subpoena and return from Verizon was requested and has not been supplied.

The defendant's motion to exclude expert testimony was denied but the motion for continuance was granted.
