Bomb threat trial continued

PRINCETON — The jury trial for Kristofer C. Watson was continued from Jan. 14 to March 4.

Watson is the suspect in two bomb threat incidents, one involving the AmericInn in Princeton in December 2011 and another involving the Burger King restaurant in January 2012.

Watson appeared before Circuit Judge Marc Bernabei for a pretrial conference. His attorney, Stephanie Wisner, made the motion for the continuance based on their ongoing attempt to get Watson's psychiatric records.

The final pretrial was set for 1:15 p.m. Feb. 6, with the jury trial set for 9 a.m. March 4.
