SHELTON — Belfair-area resident Bruce Fanning, accused of first-degree murder of an intruder he found showering inside his home, waived his right to a speedy trial on Tuesday.
Superior Court Judge Amber Finlay rescheduled Fanning’s trial for the week of Oct. 10.
Fanning is charged with the fatal shooting of Nathaniel Rosa on April 1.
Investigators said Fanning fired a gun three times into the shower curtain after warning Rosa to leave. He did not call the Mason County Sheriff's Office before the shooting took place, investigtors said.
Attorney Richard Woodrow said he and Fanning needed more time to prepare for trial. Fanning is free on $250,000 bail.
Mason County Prosecuting Attorney Mike Dorcy told the court he did not object.
