The suspect accused of killing a police officer and wounding five others says the state made a mistake in trying to seize the house where the shooting occurred.
A lawyer for Matthew David Stewart filed a motion this week opposing the seizure on technical grounds. Emily Swenson, the attorney, says an Ogden police officer served Stewart at the Weber County jail with the paperwork notifying him of the seizure.
The law requires, Swenson argues in court papers, that a lawyer, sheriff's deputy, constable or U.S. marshal serve such notices. Swenson's motion does not address the merits of efforts to seize Stewart's house at 3268 Jackson Ave. in Ogden.
