PLYMOUTH– First, the defense attorney representing Justin Kilburn, 29, of Kingston, was on trial in Salem. Next, he was scheduled to be out of the country, and now, said a court worker, attorney Jack Atwood was stuck in traffic and did not appear for the third time for a scheduled pre-trial hearing in a motor vehicle homicide case.
Kilburn stands accused of motor vehicle homicide, manslaughter by motor vehicle and OUI second offense. Kilburn killed Diane Giordani, of Plympton, and her dog Blitz, in a head-on collision on Route 106 in Plympton May 10, 2018, said Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz.
Kilburn pled not guilty to the charges.
He remains free on $50,000 bail.
Kilburn is now scheduled to appear Oct. 19, 2018 in Plymouth Superior Court at 2 p.m. before Judge Jeffrey Locke
