(Portland, OR) -- A judge is postponing action on a pair of motions filed by the state in the 2017 MAX stabbing case. A judge decided in court yesterday to wait until January 6th to make a decision on the two motions in the case against Jeremy Christian. The first motion is a request for the jury to be allowed to view the MAX train car where the stabbing happened. The second motion is a request to include other incidents involving Christian as evidence. That includes an incident in which Christian allegedly yelled hate speech on a train one day before the stabbing. Christian is accused of stabbing Taliesin Namkai-Meche and Ricky Best to death and injuring Micah Fletcher on a MAX train after they stood up for two women whom Christian was verbally assaulting.
