Discovery Deadline Extended in Murder Case
The evidence discovery deadline has been extended in the first degree murder case of a Quincy man.
At a status hearing Tuesday, the attorney for 31 year old Derek McKenzie asked that the discovery deadline be extended from this Friday to November 13th.
The extension was granted to give a DNA expert more time to review evidence in the case.
McKenzie is accused of beating 48 year old Billy Graham to death with his fists and a metal clamp in an apartment above Izzey’s Bar and Grill on North 5th in December of 2015.
A status hearing has been set for November 14th.
McKenzie is in the Adams County Jail on $5-million dollars bond.
