Trial Postponed in Bondsman's Slaying

A judge today postponed the trial of a man accused of killing Richmond bail bondsman James W. Woolfolk III.

Richmond Circuit Judge Beverly W. Snukals granted the request because James E. Carr, who originally waived his right to be tried by a jury, changed his mind. Snukals set Sept. 16 as a new trial date.

Defense attorney Dean Marcus filed two motions this week: to withdraw Carr's waiver of his right to a jury trial and to withdraw as counsel for Carr, who wanted a new lawyer.

This morning, Carr said he and his client had patched up their differences but that his client still wanted to be tried by a jury.
