Attorneys were scheduled to meet with a judge Friday to discuss the case of Craig Hicks, who is accused of killing a Muslim couple and one of their relatives, but the hearing was postponed.

Attorneys representing the prosecution and the defense were slated to go over Hicks's pretrial case management before a judge in Durham, however, it has now been been delayed until June.

Hicks is charged with murder in the 2015 deaths of Deah Barakat; his wife, Yusor Abu-Salha; and her sister, Razan Abu-Salha. The couple were neighbors of the defendant, who was known for arguing over parking spots at a Chapel Hill apartment complex and also making Facebook posts disdaining all religions.
