The case against a former EKU football player is headed to the grand jury.
Davin Walker's attorney asked in court Wednesday morning that his client's first degree robbery charge be decreased, but the judge denied that request.
Officers say Walker shoplifted from the Richmond Wal-Mart, and while trying to get away, pushed a 69-year-old woman into a shopping cart, causing her to fall.
The woman lost part of her thumb in the incident.
Walker pleaded not guilty to the charges.
