Man linked to death of chief's daughter expecting offer from prosecutors

By Derrick Rose bio | email | Twitter

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - The man linked to the death of a police chief's daughter is expecting an offer from prosecutors in the case.

Michael Harvey appeared in Mecklenburg County court Thursday morning to be arraigned on drug and weapons charges. He is also charged with killing Valerie Hamilton, daughter of Concord Police Chief Merl Hamilton in September 2010.

During Thursday's hearing, Harvey's attorney, Kim Saxton, asked the hearing be pushed to February 18 because the defense team was waiting on a "global offer" from Assistant District Attorney Beth Greene.

Saxton said Greene told her the state would be formally making that offer at the February court hearing.

Saxton did not say what would be offered.

Saxton also said the toxicology reports from the state crime lab as well as a Medical Examiner's Office have not been returned.

The lack of those documents cause previous delays in hearings for Harvey.

The judge agreed to move the arraignment to February 18.

Hamilton was found dead in a storage unit after she was last seen leaving a Charlotte bar with Harvey. Since his September arrest, Harvey maintained Hamilton died of a drug overdose and that he did not kill her.

An initial autopsy report showed no signs of physical trauma to Hamilton's body.
