UTICA – The Utica man accused of stabbing 40-year-old Nicholas White to death earlier this year had another brief appearance in Oneida County Court on Wednesday.

Edmond Hyatt, 35, was supposed to be in court for a hearing on Wednesday, but that never happened. Instead, the prosecution asked for more time so that they could re-submit the case to an Oneida County grand jury with additional charges. The prosecution says they couldn’t present those charges to the original grand jury because certain witnesses were unavailable at the time.

Hyatt is already charged with second-degree murder, first-degree burglary, first-degree attempted assault, fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, and seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance in connection to White’s death.

On March 16, police were called to an apartment on John Street in Utica for a reported stabbing, where they found White with a serious chest wound. Hyatt’s initial charge of second-degree attempted murder was later upgraded to second-degree murder when White died of his injuries.

Hyatt is scheduled to appear in Oneida County Court again on Sept. 5.
