Re-indictment in nine year-old murder case leads to charges and countercharges

The Leesburg paper has this interesting account ("Man Charged With Murder Will Remain Jailed; Judge Criticizes Public Defender," 5/14/04) of goings on in a murder case, where the defendant was tried as a juvenile, released based on a Virginia Supreme Court ruling, reindicted years later as an adult after the Virginia Supreme Court changed its mind, and now the public defender is riling the circuit court while accusing the prosecutor of grandstanding.
