Since a few days after the shooting, Stewart has been represented by attorney Randall Richards, but Stewart said Friday he will be seeking new counsel. Stewart had an initial appearance Wednesday in 2nd District Court in Ogden via a video link from the county jail. A status hearing for Stewart was set for Feb. 7.
Near the end of his visit, Stewart implied more facts of what happened Jan. 4 will emerge.
"I’ve always been a big fan of the truth," Stewart said. "It’s tough for me to stay silent on some issues."
