Troy stabbing suspect gets new counsel

The man accused of stabbing two people with a steak knife in Troy was in court again on Tuesday morning.

NewsChannel 13’s cameras were not allowed in court, but our crew was there as Maurice Jones was assigned a conflict defender as his counsel.

His former public defender had a conflict of interest, because he had represented other parties involved in the case.

Jones is accused of stabbing two people in late December. He pleaded not guilty at his last court appearance.
