In a July 9 viewpoint, Morton County Judge David Reich denied Chad Trolon Isaak's attorneys' movement to reduce proof and an ask for a hearing to identify if police intentionally utilized incorrect details to get a search warrant.
Isaak, 46, has been charged with four Class AA felony counts of murder, one each for the April 1, 2019, slayings of RJR Maintenance & & Management co-owner Robert Fakler and staff members Adam Fuehrer, Bill Cobb and his wife, Lois.
Investigators state Isaak is the masked guy captured on video camera driving away in a white pickup from the RJR building. Authorities used mobile phone place information to find who remained in the location at the time of the murders. A McLean County Sheriff's Deputy, who was a patient at Isaak's chiropractic company in Washburn, N.D., also acknowledged the white pickup as belonging to Isaak.
Authorities got a search warrant and discovered blood in Isaak's lorry. He was jailed a number of days after the deadly shootings and stabbings at the business that handles the Washburn mobile park where he lives.

The defense argued officers used incorrect info to obtain a search warrant for Isaak's vehicle, which resulted in discovering evidence that prompted officers to seek out more search warrants for other residential or commercial property he owns. Officers said the suspect in the pickup was wearing dark clothes when video reveals brilliant clothing, the defense said in court documents.
Reich said video reveals some of the clothes used by the suspect was dark, while other short articles were bright.
There were other statements authorities used to acquire the initial warrant that the defense claimed were incorrect. Attorneys argued Isaak had a right to a Franks hearing to determine if that held true.
Reich suggested that the defense did not fulfill the concern to prove private investigators deliberately lied to get the warrants. He also discovered that the statements the defense claimed to be false were not essential for officers to acquire a search warrant, as there were other elements utilized for the legal search.
Isaak's jury trial is set for Nov. 30.
