Mark Redwine, the Vallecito man accused of killing his son, made a brief court appearance Friday morning for a status conference.
He is suspected of killing his 13-year-old son, Dylan Redwine, in November 2012. A grand jury issued an indictment in 2017 accusing him of second-degree murder and child abuse resulting in death. He faces 16 to 48 years in prison if convicted on either count.
Redwine, 56, wore an orange jail-issued jumpsuit at his first appearance in court in 120 days. He sat next to his public defenders, Justin Bogan and John Moran, and did not speak.
Dylan’s mother, Elaine Hall, and Dylan’s older brother, Cory Redwine, sat behind the prosecutor on the left side of the courtroom gallery.
Redwine’s defense team asked the court for more time to examine police reports and other documents in the case.
“We continue to work our way through voluminous discovery,” Bogan said. “We have identified several CDs and DVDs that we cannot open on our software.”
Sixth Judicial District Attorney Christian Champagne argued for the case to move forward.
“It’s been since August,” he said. “It’s time to get this thing on the trial track.”
Judge Jeffrey Wilson sided with prosecutors and scheduled Redwine for an arraignment on June 29.
Redwine is expected to enter a plea at the hearing.
