Update on pending murder trial of Bob Shell September 30, 2005 Photographer's murder trial postponed again Shell claims police have tampered with his computers There is another delay in a high-profile Radford murder case. The judge postponed the trial of photographer Bob Shell today after the defense claimed evidence in the case has been tampered with. Shell is charged with murder and several sex crimes in the overdose death of his girlfriend and model Marion Franklin. His attorney, Gil Davis, says three computer hard drives police seized from Shell are missing e-mails and images. Davis says the computers were altered once they were in police custody. Prosecutor Chris Rehak objected to the delay. A new trial won't be scheduled until December.
