Spring murder trial set for Childs￼
LAKE HAVASU CITY – The 2005 murder of a Canadian who was visiting Lake Havasu City will be the focus of a trial scheduled next spring in Kingman. Mohave County Superior Judge Derek Carlisle has set an April 24, 2023 start date for the trial of Stacy Childs, 60, Santa Cruz, California.
Housekeeping staff discovered the body of Barbara Kalow, 45, Ottawa, in her room at the Windsor Inn in April, 2005. Autopsy determined Kalow died by asphyxiation.
Lake Havasu City police department cold case investigative efforts uncovered DNA evidence that led to Child’s arrest and he was transported from California to Mohave County last spring after waiving extradition. Attorneys believe the trial will take a little more than one week to complete.
In advance of trial, Judge Carlisle scheduled a March 1, 2023 final management conference.
