CHAMPAIGN COUNTY -- An Urbana man accused of murdering his ex-girlfriend has a new lawyer. Originally 33-year old Darmel Smith had a public defender. This week, he hired his own attorney. Police say Smith is responsible for the death of Sheena Williams. She was found dead in Champaign in September. Authorities say she had stab wounds which did not appear self-inflicted.
