MAYVILLE – The Jamestown man accused of killing Dyllan Ownbey, 22, of Jamestown, will stand trial in Chautauqua County Court in May.
A Chautauqua County Court clerk tells WNYNewsNow that jury selection for Tavion Turner is scheduled to start on May 5. Turner is facing two counts of second-degree murder because the allegation is that the killing was intentional and that it occurred during a felony.
Authorities, however, haven’t provided specifics regarding the felony.
Ownbey, of Jamestown, was stabbed to death on Nov. 28, 2017, after the Jamestown Police Department said he was involved in an altercation with another person on Willard Street at Peterson Street.
Turner was indicted in May in Chautauqua County Court. He was remanded to Chautauqua County Jail on $1 million cash bail.
Turner’s trial was originally scheduled for November, but was adjourned. Jason Schmidt will be representing Turner. Chautauqua County District Attorney Patrick Swanson will be the prosecutor.
