Former Oneida County medical examiner case pushed backSubmitted: 10/03/2013
Story By Dan McKinney


ONEIDA COUNTY - Prosecutors believe Traci England took human body parts and used them to train her dog as a cadaver dog. England is the former Oneida and Forest County medical examiner.

She has faced several felony charges for more than a year and a half. Her case will now drag out even longer.

The case was supposed to appear before a judge in November. Now, the case has been pushed back to next year. That's because England's attorney is involved with another case.

"I can't be in two places at one time," says Joel Hirschhorn, England's attorney. "I've been in trial in federal court since September 9th on a case involving an $835 million dollar insurance fraud with eight and a half million documents. I had alerted the judge and the prosecutor to the fact there was a potential conflict a year ago. We tried scheduling before it wouldn't work out."

Forest County District Attorney Chuck Simono is concerned about the victims in the case.

"The biggest concern is for the victims, their families, this has gone on way too long," says Chuck Simono, the Forest County district attorney. "The case is two plus years old now, maybe it's time to finish the case."

England's new court date is scheduled for February 10, 2014.
