A Washington County Circuit Court jury trial for one of three men charged in a December gas station robbery was postponed this week because a man already convicted in the holdup balked at testifying for the state. Elijah R. Herring, 20, of 128 Ray St. in Hagerstown, is charged in the Dec. 16 holdup of United Petroleum, 890 Pennsylvania Ave. A jury-scheduling mix-up resulted in his case not being tried June 18, and it was postponed again on Monday. On June 18, another suspect in  the robbery, Noe Pelayo Torrez, 31, formerly of 117 Ray St., pleaded guilty to armed robbery and is awaiting sentencing.
