Drew Blahnik, convicted of killing Chris Bagley in 2018, wants a new trial, claiming one of the jurors, a Marion bar manager, knew Bagley or Blahnik. Prosecutor says there’s no evidence, just an allegation of a bartender who didn’t totally recall what she said.
Judge says he’ll likely allow Drew Blahnik, convicted of killing Chris Bagley, to change his name to Johnny Blahnik Church until after Blahnik is sentenced Oct. 12 in the fatal stabbing of Bagley in December 2018. Blahnik wants the name change to further his acting career, even though he faces up to 54 years in prison.
