LIMESTONE CO., Ala. (WAFF) - Mason Sisk, who stands accused of murdering his family, was back in court on Friday.

According to online court documents, Circuit Judge Chadwick Wise has continued an evidentiary impression hearing until Jan. 13, 2023.

The judge’s order stated the following actions will take place before the scheduled hearing:

  • The State of Alabama will obtain saliva and hair samples of the Defendant
  • The cellphones of John and Mary Sisk shall be available for inspection by the Defense team at the Limestone County Sheriff’s Department immediately, Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. In the event the Defendant needs additional relief, Defense Counsel shall file a written motion.
  • Once the State receives a report from the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences regarding the firearm recovered by the Sheriff’s Department, then said report shall be made available to Defense Counsel and to the Court immediately.

This comes from Sisk’s original trial being forced into a mistrial in September due to a cellphone that had been in the custody of the FBI since the murders. The new trial date is set for February 13, 2023.
