The 18-year-old accused of fatally stabbing an Arlington High School junior last week is now expected to be in court early next month.
Nestor Ortiz-Ocampo, from the City of Poughkeepsie, will appear in Lagrange Town Court on Oct. 5 after his preliminary hearing was canceled Thursday.
Ortiz-Ocampo is facing a manslaughter charge for allegedly stabbing and killing 16-year-old Quraan Smith, during a fight that happened last Friday after a home football game.
Smith's family is planning to hold a candlelight vigil for their son this Sunday at 7 p.m. at Waryas Park in Poughkeepsie.
