1. The defense team for Mark Redwine, the man accused of killing his son Dylan is now asking the court for more time to examine thousands of pages of police reports and other documents in the case before heading to trial. Redwine is suspected of killing Dylan in November of 2012 after the boy disappeared during a court-ordered visit to his dad’s Colorado home. Soon after Dylan’s remains were found in the woods Mark was slapped with charges, including second-degree murder. Mark’s attorney told the court they’re still looking through documents that took investigators 4 years to compile. A second status is set for April. Mark faces 16 to 48 years in prison if convicted on either count.
