Michael J. Plumadore is escorted at the Allen County Courthouse Tuesday for a pre-trial conference. Plumadore is charged in connection with the December slaying of Aliahna Lemmon. Plumadore’s attorneys said they were ready for a five-day trial set to begin June 18. That date could change if County Prosecutor Karen Richards decides to seek the death penalty against Plumadore. Another pre-trial conference is scheduled for later this month. For more on this story, see Wednesday's print edition of The Journal Gazette or visit www.journalgazette.net after 3 a.m. Wednesday.
