Court case six years in the making delayed once more

(ABC 6 News) – A Bayport man’s trial has been delayed once again in Olmsted County Court — making it increasingly likely that Antonio Beasely’s court case will last more than six years past the day that 25-year-old Michael Eide overdosed on heroin laced with fentanyl Beasely allegedly provided him.

ABC 6 News previously reported on the length of time Beasely’s case had spent in the Olmsted County Court system after Eide’s death in April of 2017.

Beasley’s pretrial was scheduled for March 16, 2023, with a jury trial March 27.

However, Beasley’s defense filed for another continuance March 3 — the seventh — allegedly after communicating with Eide’s family, according to court documents.

Beasley’s pretrial and jury trial have not been rescheduled.

According to court documents, Beasely is currently incarcerated at the MN Department of Corrections–Stillwater.
