The trial date for a Quincy murder suspect was rescheduled Wednesday morning after a conflict was recently discovered with his public defender.
Vince Carter's trial date is now set for Sept. 30, where he will be represented by Barney Bier and public defender John Clark. Holly Henze was previously appointed to defend Carter, but it became apparent that she previously represented a key witness for the prosecution.
Henze then withdrew from the case.
Adams County First Assistant State's Attorney Gary Farha says Beir was selected because the remaining public defenders had conflicts in this case.
Carter is accused of killing Terry Williams last January in a Quincy apartment. Authorities believe the two were in a dispute before Carter shot Williams with a small caliber handgun.
A pre-trial court hearing is also scheduled for Aug. 8.
