Hearing For Suspect In Williams Shooting Delayed

DENVER (AP) - A hearing for a suspect to enter a plea in the killing of Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams has been postponed.

Willie D. Clark was scheduled to enter a plea Thursday in the drive-by shooting that killed Williams on New Year's Day 2007. Clark faces 39 counts, including murder.

A judge rescheduled the hearing for Dec. 19 after Clark's attorneys said they needed more time.

Williams was shot after leaving a nightclub. An indictment says Williams and Clark were at the club with separate groups that exchanged taunts inside. The argument continued outside, and Williams and his friends left in a rented limousine.

A witness told investigators that Clark was driving an SUV when he caught up with Williams' limo and fired into it.
