``As a lawyer, I can't say it absolutely will go (to grand jurors), but my best guess is that it probably will,'' Franklin said. He's asked Superior Court Judge James G. Bodiford to bring Marsh before a grand jury.
Investigators uncovered 334 uncremated bodies at the Noble crematory last February. Marsh has been charged with 334 counts of theft by deception and 64 counts of abuse of a corpse.
Franklin said Bodiford would determine when the case will go to trial, if the grand jury indicts Marsh.
Defense attorney Ken Poston said he and prosecutors must first go through all the evidence linked to the more the 400 felony charges against Marsh.
``Things will probably start picking up speed around now,'' Poston said. ``We're going to be focused on getting ready.'
