The defendants, Richard Lee Longoria and Andrew Clay Lopez, were charged with murdering Alex Longoria when the victim was at Kohler (Nopal) Park last August.
A staff member at the Bee County District Clerk’s office confirmed this week that announcements in the case will be heard on April 8 at 1 p.m. and the trial is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. Monday, April 14.
Prosecutors reported that the delay was approved so that evidence gathered at the scene could be tested.
The two men were indicted two months ago by a Bee County grand jury on murder charges. Richard Longoria also was indicted on a charge of felon in possession of a firearm.
According to the indictments, Lopez was driving a vehicle in which R. Longoria was a passenger on Aug. 18 when the vehicle pulled up on the north side of Kohler Park.
Police have said Lopez stayed behind the wheel of the 1997 Camaro while Longoria stepped out with a .22-caliber rifle and fired the fatal shot.
