A trial for the suspect in the slaying of Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams will be held after the NFL season to give defense attorneys time to interview NFL players who are witnesses in the case.
Denver District Judge Christina Habas made her ruling Friday. The defendant, Willie Clark, faces first-degree murder charges in
the shooting death of Williams on New Year's Day 2007.
Williams' trial had been set for Oct. 13 but is now scheduled for Feb. 22.
During the hearing, a handcuffed and shackled Clark told Habas that the media has vilified him during the three years since
Williams' death and that he doubts he can get a fair trial.
