The judge took the matter under advisement regarding Sheldon James Smith, with no future court hearing set.

The criminal complaint alleges that Smith stabbed the victim during an encounter between two groups of individuals. Smith fled the scene with his companions. The victim died on the way to the hospital of apparent stab wounds to the chest.
