1 year, 5 months ago by Scott Hardy

Faces five counts in Nov 2015 death of Carlous Wires, Sr.

A Quincy man, accused of murder in the 2015 shooting death of Carlous Wires, Senior, has had his trial delayed a month.

Steven Gavin was in Adams County Circuit Court Wednesday afternoon, ahead of a July 9th trial. Court records show that the trial's been moved back to August 13th. Gavin's pleaded Not Guilty to four counts of First Degree Murder and one count of Armed Robbery. His case has had numerous delays since last August, including a postponement of a February trial. Prosecutors say Gavin shot and killed Wires, and then robbed him in his home in the 700 block of North 4th Street in November, 2015, over a disagreement about a drug sale.

Gavin's in the Adams County Jail on $5 million bond, and will next be in court July 18th.
