SUNBURY – Northumberland County will be paying thousands of dollars for experts to examine evidence against Victor Hare. In court Monday, Hare’s attorney, public defender Kate Lincoln, was granted $5,000 to hire a forensics expert and pathologist.
Hare is scheduled to stand trial in the death of 9-year-old Korbin Rager who died of an overdose of oxycontin. Lincoln wants the pathologist to examine autopsy results and a lab technician to review DNA results. Prosecutors say the motions have been pending since May. Hare’s trial is scheduled for January.
