Court Briefs – Inmate faces murder trail
An Oct. 2 trial date has been set for a Soledad Prison inmate facing a potential death penalty for the alleged murder of a convicted child molester in the prison. Kenneth Bivert, 29, is charged with the murder of Leonard Swartz, who was stabbed in the throat with a prison-made shank on Feb. 5, 1997. Bivert, who has pleaded innocent to the murder charges, is serving 52 years to life in prison for murdering three people in Yolo County when he was 17 – events that could become issues in his trial should it go to a penalty phase. Potential death penalty trials are split into separate hearings to determine guilt and penalty. On Thursday, defense attorney Richard West and Deputy District Attorney Berkley Brannon estimated the guilt phase of the trial would take about three weeks. Brannon noted that the issue of Bivert’s guilt in the capital case “will be as contested as we’ve had in this county.”
