Foerster case postponed
The Cherryville man accused of murdering an Armstrong teen has a new lawyer.
Matthew Stephen Foerster, 27, has changed his lawyer for the second time since his arrest in 2012 for the murder on Halloween night, 2011, of Taylor Van Diest, 18.
As a result, Foerster’s trial, slated to start in April, has been postponed so his new lawyer can get up to speed.
Foerster will be back in court Feb. 18 to fix a new date for his trial.
Van Diest was attacked as she walked near railway tracks, and was discovered later by friends and family.
She died that night in hospital.
