Mize trial pushed back to December

by Ivan Foley
Landmark editor

The trial date for Chrysta Mize, accused of conspiring to kill her ex-husband and to collect on a forged life insurance policy, has been pushed back to Dec. 2 in Platte County Circuit Court.

Platte County Prosecutor Tammy Glick said the defense asked for a delay in the case.

Originally, the trial for Mize, 28, had been scheduled for Aug. 12.

Pretrial motions will now be heard Nov. 21. Mize is free on $100,000 bond that was posted on July 11.

Thad Mize was shot to death Dec. 12 on a Kansas City, North road.

Chrysta Mize's parents, Jimmy and Brenda Williams, await trial on charges of first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the case.

Glick said the prosecution is prepared to go to trial against Jimmy Williams on Sept. 3. It is not yet known whether the defense will seek a continuance that would delay his trial.
