Tuesday, January 11, 2011 | 4:15 p.m. CST

COLUMBIA  — Eric Jamison, who was scheduled for a preliminary hearing in Boone County Associate Circuit Court Tuesday, has been granted a continuance.

Jamison, 22, is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Crestful J. Williams, 21, who was shot five times while visiting Jamison's ex-girlfriend at Lakewood Apartments on Anita Court in September, according to previous Missourian reporting. He also is charged with five other counts, including endangering the welfare of a child in the first degree.

Assistant Public Defendant Ian Hauptli said he asked for a continuance because he needs more time to work on the case. No new date has been set for the preliminary hearing.
