Murder trial rescheduled


June 13, 2006|By JULIE BYKOWICZ

The trial of Raymont Hopewell, a Baltimore man charged in the killing five elderly women between 1999 and August last year, was postponed until Sept. 14 after a brief court hearing yesterday.

Hopewell, 35, had been scheduled to stand trial next month.

His attorney, Richard C.B. Woods, requested that Circuit Judge John M. Glynn postpone the trial, saying the defense's DNA expert needs more time to review the evidence.

Assistant State's Attorney Matthew Fraling said the state was ready for trial but that he understood the need for a postponement.
