Randy Howard is escorted into District Judge Miles Bixler's office this afternoon for a preliminary hearing. Howard is charged in connection with an assault on a Columbia man last September.
Howard is charged with aggravated assault and criminal conspiracy in connection with the September 3, 2017 wolfpack attack on a Columbia man on the 600 block of Walnut Street. He was apprehended in Columbia on March 15 by Columbia Borough and West Hempfield Township police. Shakim McIlwain was convicted last month for his part in the attack.
Howard will also do time for a parole violation stemming from a previous crime, to be served consecutively.
