Derderians seek details of local fire marshal's training
PROVIDENCE -- The attorneys for Jeffrey and Michael Derderian filed motions in Superior Court today seeking to subpoena detailed information about the training of former West Warwick Fire Marshal Denis Larocque.
The subpoenas would apply to the fire academy of the Rhode Island State Fire Marshal’s Office, the town of West Warwick, and the National Fire Protection Association.
The Derderian brothers, co-owners of The Station nightclub in West Warwick, have been charged with 200 counts of involuntary manslaughter in connection to the fire that killed 100 people there in 2003.
According to the motions, the Derderians want "copies of any and all itineraries, syllabi, records, reports, or written materials of any kind relative to training received by Denis Larocque."
Superior Court Judge Francis J. Darigan Jr. has scheduled a hearing to rule on the subpoena requests for Thursday.
The brothers are scheduled to be tried separately. Michael Derderian's trial is set to begin Sept. 5.
