Nearly two years after her death on Dec. 30, 2010, the trial for Reginald Powell— the man charged in connection with Jennifer Katz's murder—will conclude in White Plains on Friday.
Katz's family has plastered the Larchmont-Mamaroneck community with flyers imploring those that knew the Mamaroneck mother of two to come show their support by attending the last day of trial when summations will be read.
Powell was arraigned on June 20, 2011 on eight felony charges including first and second degree murder, second degree burglary, two counts each of third degree grand larceny, criminal possession of stolen property, criminal possession of a controlled substance as well as a seventh degree criminal possession of a controlled substance charge, a misdemeanor, all relating to the murder of Katz.
If convicted, Powell could potentially spend the rest of his life in prison. He was previously incarcerated for the 1982 murder of a New Rochelle cab driver.
The trial will take place at the Westchester County Courthouse, 111 Martin Luther King Blvd., White Plains at 9:30 a.m. tomorrow with Judge Hubert.
