Man Accused of Killing Girlfriend to Go to Trial

Garren Musser Trial Pushed Back to End of February


The trial for Garren Musser, who admitted in a taped interview with authorities to stabbing Lisa Zazueta to death outside his home in October 2008, has been pushed back to later this month.

The trial was set to begin last week, but will now get underway on 2/24. One of the reasons he killed her, Musser told authorities, is because she wouldn’t leave him alone.
