Judge pushes murder trial back

The jury trial for Dominique Williams was postponed until the week of Feb. 12.

Williams, 24, is charged with first-degree murder while armed for the 2015 homicide of Marcellus Green, 39.

Judge Judith Bartnoff asked witnesses to return on Feb. 13.

Bartnoff pushed the trial back because she is currently dealing with a 1991 triple homicide murder trial for Benito Valdez. Valdez’s trial began on Jan. 23.
