Defense attorneys ask for more time in Dylan Redwine murder case

DURANGO, Colo. - A father accused of killing his 13-year-old son was in court Friday for a brief appearance.
According to our partners at the Durango Herald, Mark Redwine appeared in court, donning an orange jumpsuit, for a status conference.
The father is the prime suspect in his son, Dylan Redwine's murder. He was indicted for second-degree murder and child abuse resulting in death in July of last year. If convicted, he faces anywhere from 16 to 48 years behind bars.
In court today, Redwine’s defense asked for the court to give them more time to pour over police reports and other case documents. This would be the second time his attorneys have asked for an extension in order to prepare for trial. Back in December 2017, Redwine's attorneys requested additional time, which was granted.
The 56-year-old has maintained his innocence. He is expected to enter a plea in an arraignment set for June 29.
Dylan Redwine went missing in November 2012 during a court-ordered visit with his father in Vallecito, Colorado. His remains were not found until 2013 about eight miles from Mark Redwine's home. Dylan's skull was found two years later a mile-and-a-half away from the first location. Court documents showed signs of blunt force trauma with markings consistent with tool marks from a knife.
