Young hearing not until August

GLENWOOD SPRINGS – Harley Quint Young and Micah Marie Schmid-Young appeared in 9th District Court on Thursday where their arraignment hearing was continued until August. The couple is accused of killing their 4-month-old baby at their Garfield County home on Feb. 17, 2002. Harley Young, who donned a red Garfield County Jail uniform as he appeared in front of 9th District Judge T. Peter Craven, could face the death penalty. Micah Schmid-Young could receive 6 to 24 years in prison, or up to 48 years if aggravating circumstances are found, for her suspected role in the killing.The couple’s next hearings are now both scheduled for the morning of Aug. 5. Schmid-Young’s court-appointed attorney, Jonathan Shamis, said he needed more time to read transcripts related to the case. Harley Young’s public defender, Jim Conway, said he needs time to consider which grand jury motions he needs to file on behalf of his client. After the couple was indicted by a Colorado grand jury in February, the couple was nowhere to be found. New Mexico State Police eventually found and caught the pair on March 29 near Tucumcari, N.M.According to reports, the incident occurred in an apartment near the Colorado Mountain College turnoff, about halfway between Glenwood Springs and Carbondale. He said the couple, originally from the Denver area, lived in the apartment for about six months before they allegedly killed their daughter.Contact Greg Massé: 945-8515, ext.
