MEDFORD, Ore.-- A court trial nearly three years in waiting might have to wait longer. Kevin Mayo died in a reported road rage accident three years ago.
Over those years the family has yet to see a trial for his death with the suspect's legal counsel asking to postpone the trial several times. Because of Coronavirus reasons, the defendant is asking for another continuance.
"It was the holiday season unfortunately when our son was killed, every holiday season is hard, but its really harder putting our life on hold and putting our grief on hold just thinking we're going to be having a trial," said Kibby Mayo, Kevin's step-mom.
Police say Kevin Mayo and Raleigh Rodrigues were involved in a road rage incident on I-5.
Rodrigues was charged by police for manslaughter in the 1st and 2nd degree .
The Mayo family says they are saddened that while they wait for the trial Rodrigues gets to continue to make memories.
"We need to have our day in court, we need that in order to have that resolution...there is anger, I'm angry about it and until I'm told a verdict, and I want to move on to the next stage of grief, I don't want to be angry anymore," said Kibby.
"We're going to get out ahead, we're going to be outside the Jackson County Courthouse fighting for justice." said Chris Mayo, Kevin Mayo's father.
