Luis Smolen, A Family Member of Victim Appear in Court

17 Dec

by Ken Davidson

Hessville native Luis Smolen was formally charged with the murder of his 6 week old daughter last week. Smolen made a brief appearance in Court on December 16, waiving his right to an arraignment within 14 days. Smolen will remain in custody in Wayne County Michigan at least until his next hearing date which is January 13, 2014. An unknown family member of the victim appeared in court also and acknowledged that she had been contacted by the office of the prosecuting attorney.

      No, this occurred in Michigan. The Gazette is covering it because we believe that the defendant is from Hessville. Indiana Courts do not allow cameras.
