After a long meeting with a prosecutor and attorneys for Los Angeles Kings defenseman Slava Voynov, a Torrance judge handling the alleged domestic violence case suggested Tuesday that a deal might be in the works. The trial is slated to start July 8.
Judge Eric Taylor met with defense attorneys Pamela Mackey and Blair Berk for about 30 minutes Tuesday afternoon in closed chambers, per Larry Altman of the Daily Breeze.
What was said was not revealed but Taylor asked everyone to return to court Thursday.
“You all are talking now, which is good,” Taylor said. “Come back Thursday.”
The attorneys responded “yes” when Taylor asked the attorneys if he should keep the trial start date.
Voynov, 25, sat in the court as an audience member as the attorneys met.
The defenseman faces a domestic violence charge resulting from an incident that allegedly occurred in his Redondo Beach home October 19 that resulted in a trip to a hospital emergency room with his wife, Marta Varlamova.Read more... Join the Conversation...
