BELLEFONTAINE, Ohio (WDTN) – Defense lawyers in Logan County are set to present their arguments to make big changes to their client’s case.
Lawyers for Joseph Pilkington have moved to dismiss the case for a delay in prosecution, and remove the county prosecutors from the case. Other motions have also been filed.
Prosecutors say Pilkington sexually assaulted his wife, Brittany Pilkington, when he lived with her mother and while Brittany was a teenager.
Brittany is now accused of killing the couple’s three young sons. Brittany Pilkington, 23, pleaded not guilty to aggravated murder and could face a death sentence if convicted.
