The murder trial of three men accused of killing former City Councilman Kenneth N. Harris was postponed Monday because one defense attorney is in trial with another client and a second lawyer needs more time to investigate the case. The state also needs time to respond to a defense motion, filed by Jason Silverstein on Christmas Eve, seeking to throw out certain DNA evidence as illegally obtained. The new trial date for defendants Charles McGaney and Gary Collins, both 21, and Jerome Williams, 17, is April 30. The three young men are accused of fatally shooting Harris in the early morning of Sept. 20, 2008, after a failed robbery attempt at the Northwood Plaza shopping center in Northeast Baltimore.
