Pretrial hearings will be held in June for Emerson “John” Tohafjian, who is serving a life sentence for two murders and now faces a rape charge.
On Tuesday, Acting Seneca County Judge Daniel Doyle scheduled the hearings for June 14. Tohafjian faces felony charges of rape and unlawful imprisonment for an incident that allegedly took place last June in Fayette.
In December, Tohafjian was convicted of first-degree murder and a slew of other charges related to July 10 shootings at a Virginia Street apartment house in Waterloo. He was found guilty of killing Lori McConnell and Chuck Andrus, as well as injuring Karen Zdunko, a friend of both victims.
