Ricky Woods will have to wait a bit longer to learn if the Oneida County District Attorney's Office plans to retry him for the 2015 murder of Jamal Mathis, in Utica. Woods and both attorneys were in Oneida County Court today, but the prosecutor asked for more time to decide on the retrial. The defense objected, but the judge granted an adjournment. Defense Attorney Devin Garramone doesn't yet know if new evidence would be part of any retrial, but says he's honing and tweaking, too.

"I think they may be looking into trying to do that, perhaps, but I'm re-evaluating my case, also, so I'll have a new another approach, as well," said Garramone, after Friday's brief court appearance.

Woods' first murder trial ended in a mistrial last month, when jurors couldn't agree on a unanimous verdict. All parties are due back in court December 21st, at which time prosecutors are expected to let the court and Woods know whether they plan to try him again for the murder of Jamal Mathis.
