  • Dover Police and officials from the Delaware Department of Justice are looking for a Dover man who failed to appear for trial on Tuesday.
    Stanley King, 25, whose last known address was in the unit block of Maple Lane, Dover, was scheduled for trial in Kent County Superior Court in connection with a December 2013 burglary and domestic violence case.
    An arrest warrant for King was issued when he did not appear to answer the charges, said department spokesman Cpl. Mark Hoffman.
    Hoffman said additional charges of witness tampering and noncompliance with bond will be preferred because King contacted the victim from the December incident at her new home and  tried to keep her from testifying.
    The victim and her family since have been moved to a safe location; King has a prior record of assault, drug and weapons charges, Hoffman said.
    The original charges against King include second-degree burglary, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, offensive touching, criminal mischief and interfering with emergency communications.
    Anyone with information as to King’s whereabouts is asked to call Dover Police at 736-7111; callers may remain anonymous.
    Tips also may be submitted through Delaware Crime Stoppers at (800) TIP-333, or online at tipsubmit.com.
