YORK, PENNSYLVANIA: Kashawn Flowers, a York man accused of murder, made an unusual request: he asked the judge presiding over his trial to also officiate his wedding. Flowers’ lawyer asked York County Judge Harry Ness on Tuesday, October 12, if he would consider marrying Flowers and his girlfriend. It was the first time attorney Brian Perry had made such a request, he said. Prosecutors and the judge both declined to object to the request. The judge, however, stated that the marriage would have to wait until the murder trial was completed. “Next week, we’ll take care of it,” Ness said. Kashawn Flower is scheduled to go on trial next week. Flowers is charged with assassinating a man in York in August 2014.
Triple-murder suspect Chris Watts asked the judge to keep the names of visitors to his jail cell a secret
