Trial of man accused in attack on Port Townsend woman continues

Defense attorneys in Idaho began their arguments Thursday in the trial of Jeremy Flores Sanchez, one of four alleged assailants charged in an attack on Port Townsend resident Linda LeBrane on a highway in June 2000.

Attorneys called several witnesses to the stand in Canyon County, Idaho, District Court.

Sanchez is charged with robbery, criminal conspiracy, kidnapping, aggravated battery, arson and attempted murder in the June 15, 2000 attack.

Closing arguments in the case are expected today.

One of the other defendants, John David Wurdemann, was found guilty of seven crimes in August in the attack. Two other alleged assailants await trial.
