The trial of a Sykesville man accused of soliciting two boys last year for pornographic pictures, videos and sexual offenses was postponed yesterday after the prosecutor requested time to seek additional charges. Carroll Circuit Judge Michael M. Galloway granted the delay in the jury trial of William R. Williams, 45, who lived in Westminster at the time of the alleged incidents. Prosecutor Tracey A. Gilmore said the new trial date, May 10, will allow time to take new information to a county grand jury May 4 and won't risk violating laws that require a defendant to be tried within 180 days.

New charges against George Huguely V, the former University of Virginia lacrosse standout accused of killing fellow student Yeardley Love, are likely to give prosecutors more flexibility in the case, legal experts said Monday. In a brief hearing Monday morning in General District Court, Commonwealth's Attorney Dave Chapman entered the new charges, including one for first-degree felony murder, for the record. He also said he needed more time to examine the more than 100 pieces of evidence gathered by police, and Judge Robert H. Downer Jr. pushed back a preliminary hearing scheduled for Jan. 21. Josh Bowers, a University of Virginia law professor who specializes in criminal law, said in a phone interview that with a felony murder charge prosecutors would not have to prove Huguely went to Love's apartment with the intention of killing her. Even if he simply planned to take her computer, which he did before dumping it in a trash bin, the fact that Love died during an ensuing struggle would be enough to back up the charge.
