Attorneys discuss possible trial date for eye-gouging suspect

Posted: Updated:

PINCKNEYVILLE, Ill. -- Attorneys discuss a possible trial date for a man accused of gouging another man's eyes out.

Perry County prosecutors charged Allen Fisher with felony battery for a fight April 7.

Attorneys held a pre-trial hearing Tuesday, hashing out some issues with evidence in the case.

They're still waiting on a few different recordings as well as lab results from tests on items inside Fisher's car.

Investigators believe Fisher chased Robert Pfister down, eventually blocked his car on a dead-end road and then gouged his eyes to a point where Pfister may lose his eyesight permanently.

The judge set a timetable Tuesday for evidence submission.

Prosecutors have until the end of the month to submit things that support their case and the defense will have a few weeks to respond before a motion hearing August 30.

Attorneys said there's a possibility a trial could be set in late October. A final pre-trial hearing would occur a couple weeks before that.
