DURANGO, Colo. -- Mark Redwine, the man accused in the 2013 disappearance and death of his 13-year-old son, Dylan Redwine, was back in the La Plata County Courthouse Friday. Standing before Judge Jeffery R. Wilson, Redwine's defense team brought forth nine motions for consideration.
Within those nine motions, there were three main focus points -- one being that the defense asked for the protection and conservation of all evidence that will be used in the trial. That means if there is a small amount of evidence that needs to be subjected to testing by the prosecution, that enough of the evidence is preserved for the defense to run tests of their own.
If the evidence amount is too small to be subjected to more than one testing, the defense asks that their experts be allowed to attend the prosecutions testing of the evidence.
The defense all made a motion for Redwine's right to silence be protected. Extending off of that, the defense asked that the La Plata County Sheriff's Department be prohibited from allowing the media access to Redwine while he is in jail.
Elaine Hall, Dylan's mother and Redwine's ex-wife was also present at the hearing.
"I'm just glad we are here, you know? I obviously wish Dylan could come back," Hall said. "And you know, while we've been fighting for justice, it doesn't bring him back. But at least we are one step closer to getting justice for my sweet 13-year-old son."
Redwine’s defense team will be back in court on Dec. 15 for a check-in with the judge before proceeding to arraignment. Redwine has yet to enter a plea.
