Daron Wint’s IPA hearing moved to October

Daron Wint, 34, charged with the alleged murder of four people, had his Innocence Protection Act hearing moved to Oct. 27, after both sides agreed they weren’t ready to have the hearing Friday, as originally planned.

Wint’s DNA was discovered at the crime scene where Savvas and Amy Savopoulos along with their son and housekeeper were killed on May 14, 2015.

At the IPA hearing, DNA is presented and the defendant has the right to have the evidence be retested. The reason for rescheduling the hearing was due to the defense wanting several items to be tested with their own experts.

Judge Lopez allowed for the hearing to be moved.
