Johnson’s attorney asked the court for a delay in the proceedings until the Olmsted County Attorney makes a decision on convening the grand jury. That decision is expected by next week at the latest.

State law requires a grand jury to recommend 1st-degree murder charges.

Johnson’s $3-million bail remains in effect.
