A Utica man accused of stabbing another man to death in May was set to appear in court on Friday.  Instead his attorney filed motions in Oneida County Court. 

Seventy-one year old Lawrence Abbott is accused of stabbing and killing a man on the 1600 block of Howard Street in Utica--that being the third homicide of the year. 

Abbott is now set to appear in court next week.
