Former Raiders First-Round Pick Charged with Murder


Authorities say former Raiders defensive end Anthony Smith and two others have been charged with murder in the 2008 beating and shooting death of a 31-year-old man in northern Los Angeles County according to the Associated Press.

District attorney’s spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons says a judge Friday postponed arraignment for the 43-year-old Smith and two other suspects until March 17.

Smith, 41-year-old Charles Eric Honest and 32-year-old Dewann Wesley White were charged last month with one count of murder in the killing of Maurilio Ponce in Lancaster. They were arrested this week and are being held on $1 million bail.

Smith was the Raiders’ No. 1 pick in the 1990 draft, No. 11 overall.
