Jarod Lane’s Case Setting Hearing Continued, Scholl Family Continues To Rebuild

Lane is accused of killing his ex-girlfriend Jessica Scholl in her home on May 25, then setting the house on fire before fleeing to Oklahoma.

Jarod Lane’s attorney again asked for a continuance at his most recent hearing on Wednesday, which had been continued from Auguest 16 and again from October 8. His re-scheduled case setting is now scheduled for Dec. 17 at 1 p.m. in courtroom 1201 at the King County Courthouse.

A spokesperson for the King County Prosecutor's Office says continuances are a normal part of the procedure.

Lane pleaded not guilty to charges of murder and arson in the first degree during his arraignment hearing on June 13.

The 2011 Lindbergh High School graduate is , in her home on May 25 and then setting the house on fire before fleeing to Oklahoma.

Lane was arrested in Oklahoma City on May 28; extradited to Washington state; and booked into the King County Jail with bail set at $2 million.

In the meantime, the Scholl family continues to recover and rebuild.

“Over the last few months, in addition to dealing with the loss of their only child, Doug and Stephanie have had to move from their home of 15 years and battle with their insurance company about their house,” Julie Logan explained on www.giveforward.com, an online fundraising site. 

The site has raised $985, which is only 2 percent of the family’s goal.

Although the fundraiser will close on February 28, 2013, donations or discounts on goods or services are also being encouraged.
