A new defense attorney took on a 2019 homicide case on April 26.
Defense attorney Anthony Matthews was recently assigned to Smith’s case, replacing the previous attorney, Ieshaah Murphy. Matthews said he has not had much time to review the case, besides a short conversation with the defendant.
“If Mr. Matthews can settle in more, then maybe we can have more meaningful discussions on this case,” said Judge Milton Lee.
This case is also awaiting indictment. If there is an indictment by the time of the next hearing, which Judge Lee scheduled for June 28, an arraignment will be scheduled.
