BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - The husband of slain Brusly High School teacher, Sylviane Finck Lozada, will challenge a judge’s ruling against throwing out his confession in court Wednesday, June 12.
Still, no trial date set has been set.
According to the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office, in 2018, Oscar Lozada admitted to killing and dismembering his wife back in 2011. Lozada’s attorneys argued the confession should be thrown out because a detective failed to honor his request for an attorney.
On April 15, Judge Bruce Bennett, who is now presiding over the second degree murder case after state District Judge Trudy White moved to civil court, denied Lozada’s suppression motion.
Lozada’s attorneys are challenging Judge Bennett’s ruling. The trial is on hold until a higher court makes its ruling.
