UTICA, N.Y. -- Court proceedings will be delayed again for a Utica homicide suspect in order to give him more time to find a lawyer.
In Oneida County Court Wednesday, Jorge Campos got an adjournment for two weeks to give his family more time to secure an attorney.
He faces a second-degree murder charge in the shooting death of teen Stefan Medina back in 2018, which was upgraded earlier this month.
On the night of August 19, 2018, Utica police were called to the 700 block of Elizabeth Street near Hubbell Street for a report of shots fired with a person injured. When they arrived on scene, they found Stefan Medina lying in a driveway with a gunshot wound. He was transported to a local hospital where he died from his injuries.
Campos is due back in court February 27.
