QUINCY -- The case of the Quincy man charged in the 2019 strangulation death of another Quincy man has been continued.
Carlos Williams was set to go to trial next month, but his attorney, Public Defender Chris Pratt, asked Wednesday in Adams County Circuit Court that the case be removed from the jury trial docket.
Pratt said he still needed to review police reports that he had just received with Williams.
Williams, 55, is accused of strangling 20-year-old Orlando Smith between May 27 and 30. Smith's body was found May 30 in the 200 block of Koch's Lane.
He faces three counts of first-degree murder, and he pleaded not guilty to the charges on Dec. 11.
Williams was arrested Nov. 19 at the Adams County Courthouse as he appeared in unrelated cases.
He is set to return to court March 11 and is being held in the Adams County Jail on $5 million bond.
