Quick update: I reported back in October that the trial of Cara Cottle, the woman accused of the second-degree murder of noted area goth Dirk Smiler, would begin on Jan. 10. The jury trial has been pushed back again, to Feb. 28 at 10 a.m. at Fairfax County Circuit Court.

Related: The recent Epiphany DVD by the post-industrial dance band Delerium is dedicated to Smiler, and was filmed at an October 2008 concert at the 9:30 Club that he attended.
