LIMA — The trial for a 17-year-old boy charged as an adult with murder in the killing of a man was pushed back for a month.
Albert A. McDowell III is now scheduled to stand trial Dec. 19 before Judge David Cheney. McDowell’s attorney, Steve Chamberlain, asked for a continuance for the trial, which was scheduled for next week. Chamberlain said he needs more time to locate and question witnesses.
McDowell also is charged with felonious assault and a second-degree murder charge for the same killing in the March 7 shooting death of Da’Veon Petaway, 19. Petaway was shot once in the stomach at Meat City at 801 E. Kibby St.
