Lambert murder trial to resume 10 a.m. today

Jurors for the Jeremy Lambert murder trial were not required to report to Raleigh County Circuit Court on Monday due to weather conditions; the trial is scheduled to reconvene 10 a.m. today, according to the prosecutor’s office.

Lambert, 33, is accused of brutally stabbing 25-year-old Cyan Maroney to death. Maroney sustained 23 stab wounds and succumbed to her injuries the night of the stabbing on Oct. 2, 2011.

The prosecution rested its case Wednesday after calling 16 witnesses, including Maroney’s roommates, chief medical examiner and police officers who questioned Lambert.

The defense heard from Lambert and his mother Thursday and Friday, and additional witnesses are expected to provide testimony today.
