PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. (COURT TV) — Attorneys for Sheila Keen-Warren filed a motion to set pretrial release conditions claiming their client is “innocent” and should be released from jail, according to court documents.
- In their January 4th filing, attorneys claim that “there is no reliable physical or testimonial evidence that Keen-Warren committed the crime.”
- Adding, “any continued restrictions on her liberty are both punitive and a violation of the presumption of innocence.”
- Keen-Warren has been jailed without a bond since October 4, 2017. Her attorneys argue that she “is neither a danger to the community nor a flight risk.”
A November 2020 court filing by state attorney Reid Scott details the evidence that prosecutors plan to present during the trial.
- Two Publix employees will testify that a woman “purchasing the exact flower and balloon ensemble found at the crime scene less than two hours before the murder. The grocery store was about a mile away from where Keen-Warren lived at the time.
- Two employees at a West Palm Beach costume shop will testify that a woman purchased a clown costume two days before the shooting. The customer told the employees that she “needed enough white makeup to cover the entire face and that the costume would be for a female.”
- Detectives located the LeBaron abandoned in a Winn-Dixie parking lot. Inside the getaway car was hair from the wig that matched hairs found on Keen-Warren’s boots.
Defense attorneys Greg Rosenfeld, Amy Morse, and Richard Lubin ask that Keen-Warren be placed on house arrest until her trial, which is scheduled to begin in April.
