Local News

An arraignment for a New Year’s Day murder was rescheduled for Friday after counsel failed to show up to court on Wednesday.

Carl Bell, 34, appeared in court for his formal arraignment, but his counsel was not present, forcing the judge to move the hearing.

Bell is charged with the death of Charles Lesser, 53, after police said Bell brutally beat Lesser and Daniel Green at the Linn-Lee Motel, 3425 West Lake Road, on Jan. 1.

Bell is charged with criminal homicide and three counts of aggravated assault.
