Ruling Delayed On Delay Request of Murder Trial

A delay request in a Campbell County murder case has been put on hold. Defense attorneys for 27 year old, Anthony Dale Witt, on Tuesday filed a motion to postpone the pending June 2nd trial. The judge felt too few details were presented and did not issue a ruling on the motion. A follow-up letter has been ordered by the court from the expert who indicated he cannot complete pre-trial evidence in time. Witt of Lynchburg is charged with capital murder and robbery in the death of 53-year-old Barbara Martin, whose body was discovered in August 2012 at her Concord home. Court officials expect another hearing on the delay request will be rescheduled.
