Man Charged In McStay Family's Deaths Wants To See More Evidence
A man charged with killing a Fallbrook family whose bodies were found buried in the desert is asking the prosecution to turn over more evidence.
Charles "Chase" Merritt is representing himself in court.
U-T San Diego reported Merritt told a judge Monday that he has seen about a third of the evidence that could be used against him.
Prosecutors said Merritt should have all of the evidence — some 9,000 pages worth — by the end of the week.
The 57-year-old Merritt has pleaded not guilty to murder.
Forty-year-old Joseph McStay, his 43-year-old wife Summer and their sons, 4-year-old Gianni and 3-year-old Joseph Jr., disappeared from their Fallbrook home in 2010.
Merritt was a business associate of Joseph McStay.
