Court stays murder case order

Posted By on Thu, Feb 25, 2010 at 1:12 PM

The state Supreme Court today stayed Circut Judge Herb Wright's order that the Arkansas Public Defenders Commission had to contribute money to a help a private lawyer defend Abdulhakim Muhammad on a murder charge. Muhammad is charged with killing one soldier and wounding another at a Little Rock military center.

Muhammad, who has told reporters the shootings were in reaction to U.S. military involvement in the Middle East, is scheduled for trial in June. The Supreme Court ordered an expedited schedule for hearing the commission's appeal of Wright's ruling.
