Judge Rules Zimmerman Cannot Challenge Search Warrants in His Murder Trial
Judge Scott Drazewski ruled Wednesday that Kirk Zimmerman, the 58-year-old Bloomington man charged with killing his ex-wife Pam Zimmerman in November 2014, is not entitled to a hearing on his challenge to 15 search warrants issued in his murder case. The Pantagraph reports the decision came after arguments this week from the state and Zimmerman's defense attorney John Rodgers which stated if the search warrants were tainted because of improper affidavits, the evidence collected from those searches is also tainted. Judge Drazewski ruled sufficient cause existed for the warrants.
