Hagerstown man faces hearing on murder charges
A Hagerstown man is heading back to court on charges he killed the father of a teenage girl who wanted her dad murdered.
Twenty-year-old Alec Eger has been in plea negotiations, but neither prosecutors nor his defense attorney would say on Tuesday whether he will plead guilty during the hearing Wednesday afternoon.
Eger is charged with first-degree murder in the Halloween 2008 stabbing of Billy Lee Black outside Black's Hagerstown home.
Eger told police he stabbed Black after confronting him about beatings allegedly suffered by Black's daughter Danielle.
Sixteen-year-old Danielle has recanted the allegations. She is serving a 10-year sentence for soliciting her father's murder.
