Hutchinson Murder Trial to Start Tuesday

The district attorney's office is not seeking the death penalty in the case of Tyler James Hutchinson, accused in the 2009 beating death of an elderly Belmont man.

The murder trial of Tyler James Hutchinon, 24, the man accused of killing 88-year-old Belmont resident Albert Korn in 2009, is scheduled to begin Tues., Jan 8 in San Mateo County Superior Court.

The trial had been scheduled to begin in October of last year, but the Hutchinson's defense attorney, James Thompson, requested a continuance stating he needed more time to prepare.

The defendant allegedly entered Korn's home in the 2500 block of Hallmark Drive on June 2, 2009, robbed and beat him and then drove away in Korn's 2004 Jaguar. Hutchinson was caught two days later in West Sacramento committing residential burglary.

Korn died at Stanford Hospital on June 17, 2009.

Prosecutors will not seek the death penalty in the murder case

The defendant remains in custody in San Mateo County Jail on no bail status.
