Lawyer for man accused of murdering woman in Southampton County withdraws from case; new trial date to be set | 13newsnow.com

Sept. 14, 2021
Investigators said James Goodwyn Jr. murdered Cynthia Carver in 2019. His lawyer asked to withdraw from the case. A judge granted the request.

SOUTHAMPTON COUNTY, Va. — A change in lawyers means a delay in the murder trial of a man accused of murdering a mother.

On Tuesday, the lawyer representing James Goodwyn Jr. asked a judge in Southampton County Circuit Court that he be allowed to withdraw from the case. Sheriff's deputies said Goodwyn abducted Cynthia Carver from her home in Newsoms in February 2019 and killed her.
[.....]
As a result of the change in counsel, the murder trial, which was on the docket for October 12, will be delayed. Prosecutors and the defense are supposed to meet on October 5 to reschedule the trial.
