Pryor probation hearing postponed

February 18, 2009

A man who is charged with killing the mother of his children and a Smithsburg police officer in December 2007 was scheduled to appear Tuesday in Washington County Circuit Court on a violation of probation charge in an unrelated 2004 assault case.

Douglas Wayne Pryor's hearing was postponed, however.

Pryor, 30, faces the death penalty if convicted in the Dec. 19, 2007, shooting death of Smithsburg Police Officer Christopher Shane Nicholson.

He also is charged with the stabbing death of his estranged girlfriend, 31-year-old Alison Munson.
