In a motion filed Friday, the West Central Tribune reports Warwick’s attorney Daniel Mohs noted that he will bring the motion at Wednesday’s pre-trial hearing before District Judge David Mennis in Kandiyohi County District Court.

18-year-old Robert “Robbie” Warwick was indicted on two first-degree murder charges for his role in the July 29, 2013, killing of his grandmother, 79-year-old Lila Warwick, at her home along the east edge of Willmar.

He faces the possibility of life in prison if convicted and has been held on $2 million bail since the September grand jury indictment.
