HBPD officer subpoenaed in Koenigs case

Holmes Beach Police Department Officer Michael Pilato was subpoenaed as a witness in the sentencing hearing of Mark Koenigs.

 Koenigs was convicted of shooting Holmes Beach resident and businesswoman Sue Normand in December 2007 at her Island Mail & More Store.

A jury found Koenigs guilty of one count of aggravated battery with a firearm and two counts of aggravated assault on law enforcement. He faces a possible sentence of life in prison.

His sentencing hearing was scheduled for Oct. 1, but was postponed last week until 1:30 p.m. Nov. 13 before Judge Diana Mooreland.

Koenigs remains in the Manatee County jail awaiting sentencing. He has been in custody since his arrest following the shooting.

The sentencing hearing will take place at the Manatee County Judicial Center, 1051 Manatee Ave. W., Bradenton.
