COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP)- Lawyers for the man charged with murder and a hate crime in the fatal stabbing of a black student in Maryland have asked a judge to exclude evidence tying him to a Facebook page called "Alt-Reich: Nation."

News outlets report 23-year-old Sean Urbanski's lawyers filed a motion Friday, saying they believe prosecutors will present content from the now-deleted white supremacist Facebook page that they say is "inflammatory" and "irrelevant."

Urbanski is charged in the death of Richard Collins III, a Bowie State student who was visiting the University of Maryland last year when he was stabbed.

State's Attorney Angela Alsobrooks has said digital evidence indicates Collins' killing was racially motivated.

If the judge rules the evidence is admissible, Urbanski's lawyers want separate trials for the murder and hate crime charges.

    Proposed Roundabout for Wicomico County Intersection

    There is a intersection in Salisbury off Route 50 that has several roads leading into it and 12 traffic lights regulating it. 

    Mount Hermon Road, Long Avenue, Truitt Street, East Williams Street, and Main Street all intersect at one central location. 

    People in the community have mixed feelings about the intersection. Some say it should be left alone because it regulates traffic just fine while others say it is a nuisance.
