COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) - Lawyers for the local man charged with murder and a hate crime in the fatal stabbing of a black student have asked a judge to exclude evidence tying him to a Facebook page called "Alt-Reich: Nation."
Sean Urbanski is from Severna Park. His
lawyers filed a motion Friday, saying they believe prosecutors will present content from the now-deleted white supremacist Facebook page that they say is "inflammatory" and "irrelevant."
Urbanski is 23-years-old.
He is charged in the death of Richard Collins III, a Bowie State student who was visiting the University of Maryland last year when he was stabbed. Prince George's County State's Attorney Angela Alsobrooks has said digital evidence indicates Collins' killing was racially motivated.
If the judge rules the evidence is admissible, Urbanski's defense lawyers want separate trials for the murder and hate crime charges.
