Defense Attorneys Seek Sealed Juvenile Court Records Regarding Phil Trenary Murder

Defense attorneys for two men charged with first-degree murder for the shooting death of Greater Memphis Chamber CEO Phil Trenary are seeking the juvenile court records of an alleged accomplice, the Commercial Appeal reports. Lawyers for Quandarius Richardson and McKinney Wright say that information from the closed-door juvenile court hearing of the 16-year-old girl, who was with them at the time of the slaying, could benefit their clients and asked Criminal Court Judge Chris Craft to issue an order allowing them to review the transcripts, orders, recordings and other materials sealed by a juvenile court magistrate. Richardson’s attorney, Paul Guibao, said he had spoken to prosecutor Ray Lepone who maintains the state plans to provide much of the information, including video from the teen girl's juvenile court hearing, in discovery. Richardson and Wright are due back in court on Jan. 16, 2020.
