January 11, 2008|By ERIN JULIUS

A man charged in the stabbing death of his former girlfriend and in the fatal shooting of a Smithsburg Police officer was expected in Washington County Circuit Court for a hearing Thursday on separate charges.

Douglas Wayne Pryor, 29, of 23432 Welty Church Road in Smithsburg, is charged in the deaths of Alison Munson, 31, of Halfway, and Christopher Shane Nicholson, 25, of Sharpsburg.

Pryor was not taken to the courthouse, so the hearing was not held, court records show. The hearing was postponed.

Thursday's hearing was to deal with charges of second-degree assault against Munson and malicious destruction of property, court records show.

Charges were filed in November 2007 after Munson told police that Pryor hit her in the head, face, chest and arm after she received a letter from Western Correctional Institution in Cumberland, Md., records show.
