New attorney for defendant

Posted by Shawn Maclauchlan

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The Hanover case involving an axe attack resumes in court Monday.

Back in October, 15 year old Austin Mayton was attacked at a Tractor Supply Co. store, leaving him with a scar on his cheek.

Since then, 16 year old Omar Abdelall has been in custody, and is expected to be tried as an adult.

Monday's hearing assigns Abdelall a new attorney.
