Duo arrested for Warfordsburg shooting still waiting for trial

by Geoff Fox

A duo arrested in January for attempted murder are still waiting in jail for their respective trial dates.

According to Fulton County District Attorney Travis Kendall, Timothy Shatzer and Crista Mills are each represented by separate council and both of the attorneys requested continuances at call-of-the-list for criminal cases on July 13 in order to be better prepared.

Call-of-the-list happens in Fulton County quarterly, Kendall said in an email.

“It is a mandatory court appearance to determine the status of each criminal case; that is, is it ready for trial, are there issues that require the court’s attention, is there a plea that will resolve the case, etc.,” he said.

The next call-of-the-list for the cases is scheduled for October 12, 2021.

No trial dates have been set at this point, Kendall said.

Shatzer, 43, and Mills, 33, both of Warfordsburg, were arrested by Pennsylvania State Police after police responded to a residence on Barnhart Road on January 7 for a report of male who had been shot multiple times with a shotgun.

The two were arrested at another location.

Shatzer faces over 50 counts of intentional possession of a controlled substance by a person not registered, meaning he is not registered with the state of Pennsylvania as someone legally allowed to posses the drug nor has a proscription to posses it; three counts of marijuana – small amount for personal use, which means less than 30 grams of cannabis; and use or possession of drug paraphernalia.

Mills is also facing over 50 charges of intentional possession of a controlled substance by a person not registered, three counts of marijuana for personal use, and one count of use or possession of drug paraphernalia.
