FARMINGTON -- Joseph Allen Nance's attorney is still waiting for test results, which are needed before a hearing can continue.
Nance, 29, who has pleaded not guilty to charges connected with the shooting of his father in March, appeared briefly Monday in 2nd District Court. He has been charged with first-degree felony murder and third-degree felony possession of a firearm by a restricted person.
"There was a firearm found," said Todd Utzinger, Nance's attorney. "The state is trying to find if the ballistics from that firearm match the bullets found in this case."
Utzinger said he is not sure when that information will be made available but that state officials told him they are working on it.
Nance will appear before Judge John R. Morris again Feb. 27.
Karla Jean Puffpaff, 47, of Layton, was also supposed to appear Monday before Morris.
Police say Puffpaff helped hide Nance after he shot his father.
Puffpaff's case was not called Monday and was continued to an undetermined date.
She is charged with second-degree felony obstruction of justice.
