Hearing postponed for accused shooter in Williams case

12/19/2008 - NFL Denver Broncos

DENVER -- The man accused of killing Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams will enter a plea in February after Friday's hearing was postponed.

Willie D. Clark faces 39 counts, including first-degree murder. His plea hearing was postponed until Feb. 20 because his attorneys wanted more time to review evidence.

Williams was shot after leaving a Denver nightclub on New Year's Day 2007. The indictment says Williams and Clark were at the club with separate groups that exchanged taunts before Williams and his friends left in a rented limousine.

A witness told investigators that Clark was driving an SUV when he caught up with Williams' limo and fired into it.

The 25-year-old Clark also was indicted last month in an unrelated shooting death.
