A man accused of committing the only murder in Belmont last year but whose trial was delayed while he was held in Yolo County jail on unrelated charges will be arraigned in San Mateo County Superior Court on Thursday.Tyler Hutchinson, 21, was transferred to the Maguire Correctional Facility in San Mateo County on Tuesday following his November conviction and December sentencing for a residential burglary committed in Yolo County, Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.Hutchinson faces one count of murder with two special circumstances — murder during a robbery and murder during a burglary — making him eligible for the death penalty, Wagstaffe said.He is also charged with one count of robbery and one count of burglary for the June 2, 2009, assault on 88-year-old Albert Korn, according to Wagstaffe.The attack happened around 3:30 p.m. in Korn’s home in the 2500 block of Hallmark Drive, police said. The suspect allegedly fled in the victim’s gray, four-door 2004 Jaguar, which was later recovered on Carlmont Drive.Korn died on June 17, and Hutchinson, who had been identified as the suspect in the robbery and assault and was already in custody in Yolo County for the unrelated residential burglary, was then charged with murder.Police Chief Don Mattei at the time called the attack “one of the most disturbing things I’ve seen in my law enforcement career.”He is scheduled to be arraigned at 9 a.m.
