Williams' Murder Suspect has Hearing Delayed

From the Associated Press:

DENVER (AP)—The man accused of killing Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams will enter a plea in February after Friday’s hearing was postponed.

Willie D. Clark faces 39 counts, including first-degree murder. His plea hearing was postponed until Feb. 20 because his attorneys wanted more time to review evidence.

Williams was shot after leaving a Denver nightclub on New Year’s Day 2007. The indictment says Williams and Clark were at the club with separate groups that exchanged taunts before Williams and his friends left in a rented limousine.

A witness told investigators that Clark was driving an SUV when he caught up with Williams’ limo and fired into it.

The 25-year-old Clark also was indicted last month in an unrelated shooting death.

Clark is facing two seperate murder charges, and recently caught charges for making a weapon in the jail he is being held in.  (I believe these represent 3 different cases).  I am not an attorney, but I suspect the tactic is to buy time for someone who is knee deep in a case(s) he likely can't win. 

In my experience in my current line of work, I imagine Clark's gang affilliation is working against him.  Because he is associated with a number of criminal types, there are a lot of folks with information and big mouths.  While their word isn't worth much, there is going to be more information to tie together for the investigators and, by implication, the prosecution.

I think this is a good sign for those of us that believe that Clark is likely responsible for Darrent's murder.
