Marion County Murder Trial Delayed
Trial of a man accused of murder in January 2016 is delayed.
Marion County Prosecuting Attorney David Clayton says the murder trial of David Brokes is delayed because the defendant’s mental examination is not yet complete and because of other discovery related issues. No new date has been set. Brokes is accused of first degree murder in the death last January of Brittany Gauch and first degree assault and armed criminal action against Aaron Gauch. Brokes is also accused of shooting Monroe City Police officer Travis Pugh.
