Elk County President Judge Richard Masson listened to several omnibus pretrial motions on Thursday during a hearing for Michael J. Stephanic Jr., 45, of St. Marys, who is currently incarcerated in the Elk County Prison on charges he allegedly shot and killed June Talmadge, 48, during a Sept. 3 incident in the parking lot of Eastern Sintered Metals.
Among motions filed by Stephanic's attorney Thomas K. Hooper were requests for a private investigator; a psychiatric exam to prove Stephanic has no history of violence; and a neuropharmacologist, who studies the effects of drugs on the nervous system, to prove the couple had consumed copious amounts of alcohol prior to the crime.
