Court date set for MU's Horton

COLUMBIA | Jason Horton's trial on misdemeanor third-degree assault charges has been set for April 15.

But the court date for his former Missouri basketball teammate, Stefhon Hannah, who faces the same charge, is still in limbo.

“Until I received all the information and we are finished with discovery, I can’t comment,” said Clayton A. Jones, a Raymore attorney who told The Star on Monday that he was representing Hannah.

Boone County Prosecutor’s office indicated it had not received notification of a court date for Hannah’s case.

Horton's attorney, Christopher Slusher of Columbia, confirmed the court date.

Hannah, dismissed from the MU team last month, and Horton, a senior set to play his final game in Columbia on Tuesday night when Missouri plays host to Iowa State, were arrested one week apart after a Jan. 27 incident at the Athena Night Club in Columbia.

The Iowa State game is Senior Night at MU, and Anderson indicated over the weekend that he planned to start Horton, Butterfield, Brown and fellow senior Vadaitos Volkus in their final regular season home game at Mizzou Arena.

“It’s going to be their night,” Anderson said. “I’ve always done that."
