Steven Gavin to Be Retried for Wires Murder
A Quincy man will be tried a second time on murder and robbery charges.
In Adams County Circuit Court Wednesday, the State’s Attorney’s Office announced that they plan to retry Steven Gavin for the murder of Carlous Wires, Sr.
Gavin’s first trial last week ended in a hung jury.
Gavin is alleged to have shot Wires twice in the head during the course of a robbery at a Quincy residence in 2015.
Pretrial motions in the case, including motions for a speedy trial and a change of venue, will be heard March 15th.
