Smith's attorney, Matthew Bruce, anticipated a bond hearing Wednesday, but it did not happen.

Information is still coming in from the investigation by , DiSanto said. A grand jury will be convened to decide charges, but DiSanto was unsure when that would happen.

Smith was taken to county lock-up on Tuesday afternoon.

A fourth knife was found on Smith.

Every season I wonder what <b><a href="http://www.louisvuittondamierspeedybag.com">Louis Vuitton Handbags</a></b> will create. I know I won’t like everything, but I can count on Louis Vuitton to make a few bags that are absolutely lust-worthy, it’s just what they do. When we shared a closer look at their Spring 2012 collection, I remember not being entirely impressed. Of course there was a theme – lightness and femininity paired with a whimsical touch – but as many have said, the bags look like they are made out of plastic (which they aren’t, just look at the price tags). But nestled into this collection is a perfect summer piece, the <b><a href="http://www.louisvuittondamierspeedybag.com">Louis Vuitton Speedy</a></b> North South bag. Nautical blue and cream calfskin leather offset one another in a take on the <b><a href="http://www.louisvuittondamierspeedybag.com">Louis Vuitton Online Outlet</a></b> house classic.
