Retrial date set for Quincy murder suspect

QUINCY (WGEM) — Steven Gavin, a Quincy man accused of shooting Carlous Wires to death in Quincy in November, 2015, appeared in court on Wednesday.

Court records state that a jury trial was set for September 9.

The retrial for Gavin was originally scheduled to begin April 8, but was delayed when Gavin retained a new attorney, Curtis Lovelace, replacing Drew Schnack who represented Gavin in the first trial.

Gavin’s first trial ended in a mistrial after the jury deliberated for 12 hours and could not come to a verdict.
