A new trial date has been set for a man facing an attempted murder charge in Leavenworth.

A new trial date has been set for a man facing an attempted murder charge in Leavenworth.

The case of Cameron J. Walton is now scheduled to go to trial Oct. 1.

Walton, 35, is charged with attempted second-degree murder. The charge stems from a Dec. 13, 2016, incident at the Grossman Center in Leavenworth.

The Grossman Center is a re-entry facility for inmates who are completing their sentences.

Walton is accused of attacking an employee at the facility. The incident was reported the day Walton was supposed to be released from the center.

Walton’s trial had been scheduled for next week. But that conflicted with another trial scheduled to begin next week that will be presided over by the same judge.

Walton's attorney, John Bryant, also said Wednesday that he is in the process of obtaining medical records from several entities, and this was the basis of a request for a continuance.

Bryant said he anticipates that his client’s trial will last three or four days.

After selecting a new trial date, District Judge Michael Gibbens set a status hearing for Sept. 28. He said any outstanding pretrial motions can be taken up during the hearing.

He also scheduled a July 13 hearing to take up a prosecution motion to endorse a witness.

Walton remains in custody at the Leavenworth County Jail.
