Judge delays arraignment in Travis Dairy killing; lawyer not available

By From page A3 | August 31, 2011

FAIRFIELD — Arraignment for the fifth suspect in the Travis Dairy homicide was delayed until Thursday.

The attorney for the 15-year-old suspect was unable to make it to court Wednesday for the boy’s arraignment, which Judge Peter B. Foor postponed.

The boy, James E. Williamson, is charged with murder and robbery. His case was in the juvenile court since his arrest in early August.

Williamson and his four accomplices are accused of robbing and attacking the elderly owner of the store as he worked alone on the night of June 28. The owner died of a heart attack shortly after the robbery.

The four suspected accomplices, ages 17 and 18, are scheduled to be back in court Sept. 9, when a probable cause hearing may be scheduled.
