CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) - The first hearing on the Molly Young wrongful death suit is scheduled for Tuesday, April 7 at 1:30 p.m. at the Jackson County court house.
Larry Young, Molly's father, has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Richard Minton back in July of 2014.
Molly Young died in the early morning hours of March 24, 2012.
She was found with a gunshot wound to the head, lying on the floor next to her ex-boyfriend's bed in his apartment in Carbondale.
That former boyfriend, Richie Minton, was a Carbondale police dispatcher at the time.
Months later, a coroner's jury could not determine the manner of Molly's death.
Molly's family believes she was murdered.
A ruling to dismiss or proceed with the wrongful death lawsuit will be determined by the court in the following weeks.
In court today, the judge heard both sides.
