NEWPORT—A scheduled hearing in the case of one of two men who have been facing criminal charges in the Megan Maxwell murder case was delayed on Monday and reset for May 7 before Circuit Judge Ben W. Hooper II.

Jeffery Stock, 44, pled guilty in January to second-degree murder and was sentenced by Judge Hooper to 18 years in prison. His father, 65-year-old Terry Stock, who is currently living in Indiana, is awaiting trial on separate charges of accessory after the fact to murder in the Maxwell case.

Although Circuit Judge Rex Henry Ogle did not explain in detail in open court on Monday why Terry Stock's hearing has been delayed, leaving the decision to explain the reasons to the Maxwell family to the district attorney general's office, Judge Ogle did say he determined that it was "in the best interest of everyone involved" to do so.

"For those of you who are here and interested in this case, the Maxwell case has been moved until May 7," Judge Ogle told those in the courtroom. "I think it's in the best interest of everyone concerned to reset the case so it can be heard by another judge."
