Randy Blythe’s ongoing manslaughter trial has been delayed until March according to a new report from WTVR.com. Randy will return to the U.S. with his legal team requesting the delay be put in place as a key witness is sick. Another witness is scheduled to testify tomorrow (Thursday, February 6, 2013), after which the trial will restart on March 4, 2013.
â€œI have read a few news reports of the progress of my case, and trust me â€” many things are incorrect,â€ said the singer via Instagram earlier. â€œBut this is the Internet, and, of course, things are half-baked anyway. Keep in mind that translation is difficult, and many things can be lost, for Czech is a VERY DIFFICULT language. So wait and see, as I am. It is all I can do, except be honest and fight for my freedom in my own way.
â€œI also have heard of some people (not on here) talking smack about the Czech Republic, saying, â€˜Fuck the Czech Republic,â€™ etc. This [is] not how it should be. This is a very sad case, not something to rage at people you do not know over.
â€œI am not angry with the Czechs at all. A fan of my band is dead â€” what do I have to be angry about? I am an INNOCENT man, but I am also a very sad man right now. To not be sad in this instance would be inhuman. But mad at the Czech people? Why would I be mad at them?
â€œHere, look at this picture â€” a mother watches her baby. The child reaches out for something new, laughing and chasing a pretty picture in the air. It is the same here as everywhere else. Do you see?!?!?
â€œLife is beautiful.
â€œI hope to see yâ€™all soon.â€
The singer stands accused of causing the death of a Czech fan, Daniel Nosek, who is believed to have died after sustaining injuries at a Lamb Of God concert in 2010. According to Blabbermouth, witnesses have have provided testimonies that describe Randyâ€™s conduct at the gig in question as â€œextremely aggressive,â€ with witness Jan JebavÃ½ adding that Daniel â€œclimbed onto the stage, turned to the audience and was thrown into the crowd. Blythe pushed him from behind with both hands, Iâ€™m one hundred percent sure.â€
Another witness added that Randy asked the crowd if Daniel was okay and when told that he was, continued the concert.
