Accused murderer's case continued

November 9, 2010

A Hickory man accused of murder had his case continued Monday in court.
Orlando Murry Gibbs Williams, 27, of Hickory, is charged with murder after he allegedly shot and killed a man Friday.
Williams had his first appearance Monday in Catawba County District Court at the Justice Center in Newton, where his case was continued to a later date.
Williams will receive a court-appointed lawyer to represent him during the case.
According to police, Williams shot and killed a man during an apparent domestic dispute near the Little Caesar's Pizza located at Springs Road and 20th Street NE in Hickory.
Police responded late Thursday evening to a shots-fired call near the Little Caesar's, but they didn't find anything of interest at the time. A resident of a duplex in the 1000 block of 20th Street NE reported the victim's body, which was found laying outside the duplex, to police about 9 a.m. Friday.
Police issued a murder warrant for Williams, and he was later arrested. He is being held in Catawba County jail and was denied bond.
