Attorney wants speedy trial in UConn stabbing
According to an arrest warrant affidavit, Lomax and a friend, Hakim Muhammad, retrieved knives from a car during the altercation, which occurred outside a school-sanctioned dance at the student union.
Muhammad’s attorney has said that while some witnesses claim his client had something in his hand that looked like a knife, no one has offered evidence that he swung it at anyone.
A fall trial would come in the middle of UConn’s football season, and several players could be called as witnesses.
According to the affidavit, wide receiver Mike Smith told police he saw Howard throw a punch at a man later identified as Lomax. Smith said Howard ran across the street yelling “They got me!” and he walked with him toward the student center and Howard collapsed on the sidewalk.
Other players identified as being at the altercation include defensive end A.J. Portee, receiver Kashif Moore and tailback Kalmetrus Wiley. Parker, who suffered minor injuries, was dismissed from the team in January for academic reasons. None of the players has been charged with any crime.
Fullback Anthony Sherman, one of two offensive captains on the team, said Monday the Huskies will not let the criminal case keep them from having a successful football season.
“I think we’ll try to stay away from that as much as possible and let the law process, the court system, handle it, and they will do a great job handling it,” Sherman said. “It’s one of those things where we can’t let that distract us from how good we can be.”
