CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Vandals have struck a pair of Confederate statues in downtown Charlottesville yet again. 

Charlottesville police are investigating the damage done overnight to statues of Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson.

Features on the granite pedestals have sustained damage, just as they have during similar incidents in recent weeks.

Meanwhile, attorneys in the civil case met in Charlottesville Circuit Court for a closed hearing Wednesday, October 30.

A city attorney said Judge Richard Moore delayed his decision on how much money to award the plaintiffs in attorney fees.
