Meyer, Rabine and Shill were arrested July 27 on suspicion of
burglary, attempted burglary and conspiracy to commit burglary. Walker,
Furnish and Casey were arrested on suspicion of attempted burglary and
conspiracy to commit burglary.
Walker, dressed in an orange jail jumpsuit, mouthed the words "I love
you," to his parents as he left the courtroom.
Steve and Laura Walker declined comment on their son. Adam Walker was
arrested by Glendale Police on July 25 in connection with the beating
deaths of Christopher McCulloch and Blaine Talmo Jr., but was released
the following day when the L.A. County district attorney's office
declined to file charges against him, citing insufficient evidence.
Glendale Police said at the time of Walker's release that they would
continue to investigate him in connection with the killings. Police
spokesman Chahe Keuroghelian would not comment Thursday on whether Walker
remains under investigation.
Shortly after his release, Walker was arrested by Burbank Police and
charged with attempted burglary and conspiracy to commit burglary,
according to court records.
But the attorney for Michael Demirdjian, the La Crescenta teenager
accused in the killings, said Tuesday that Walker was also at Valley View
Elementary on July 22, the night Christopher and Blaine were beaten to
death on a playground.
Mathews said his client is willing to testify against the man who
choked and beat the boys to death.
Steven C. Flanagan, Adam Walker's attorney, declined to comment
outside the courthouse on Thursday.
Meanwhile, William L. Jacobson, the attorney representing Rabine, said
the continuation will give attorneys time to look at audio and video
tapes and additional paperwork.
"There's still a bunch of discovery to come," Jacobson said. "We
haven't had a chance to review any of it."
Judge Alan S. Kalkin requested the continuation because of a
conflicting courtroom assignment.
