Over his objection, a Charleston man's trial on a charge of attempted murder has been postponed a third time.
Charles Woodson, 59, is charged in the wounding of a man and his girlfriend on Madison Street last November. Woodson's son, Kenneth, 20, was also charged. He pleaded guilty to lesser charges and is serving a one-to-five-year sentence.
Defense attorney Zoe Shavers twice requested that Woodson's trial be delayed because of trouble getting witnesses to trial. This time, Assistant Prosecutor Tera Salango made the request for a continuance so a physician can be available to testify about the injuries.
Kanawha Circuit Judge Tod Kaufman set a new trial date for Nov. 9.
Woodson went on trial in October 2010 for a knife attack that wounded his wife and three others in Rand. A jury found him not guilty.
