HICKORY, N.C. (AP) – The case of a Catawba County man accused of
shooting his roommate to death and mutilating his body has been
delayed until October.

The Hickory Daily Record reported ( http://bit.ly/nnMP0d ) that
19-year-old Michael Anderson had a hearing scheduled Tuesday in
Superior Court, but it was postponed until Oct. 3.

Anderson is charged in the death of 36-year-old Stephen Starr of
Mountain View, who died Feb. 14 of multiple gunshot wounds. An
autopsy shows that after Starr was killed, his body was mutilated
and the word “JOKER” was carved on his chest and abdomen. Words
also were written in ball point pen on his abdomen.

Anderson has been held without bond since the death. He reported
the death to 911, saying he had overdosed on an over-the-counter
cold medicine.
