A court conference was continued another week to June 1 in the case of a suspect in a Chesterfield armed home invasion robbery.
Richard James Lynch, 47, was charged with 10 counts in connection with a February 25 incident in which a jeweler and his wife were held at gunpoint in their condo while a masked man collected valuables and fled.
St. Louis County Circuit Court conferences have been ongoing since Lynch's arraignment April 25. The May 25 court date was pushed off until June 1. The defense has filed a motion to compel discovery, according to case.net.
Police picked up the suspect driving in Chesterfield just days after the home invasion, after a pawn shop employee recognized stolen jewelry brought in by the suspect, and alerted authorities.
The Chesterfield couple told police they identified the suspect by voice.
Records show an O'Fallon, MO address for Lynch. He was released from prison on parole some six months earlier after 17 years, on a conviction in a burglarly.
