In the hearing for Jahaad Marshall, a prosecutor told the judge that he would likely take the case to trial in early to mid-November.
Marshall and his teenage brother are both charged in the January crime that rocked historic Oakwood - a neighborhood on the north end of downtown Raleigh.
The Marshall brothers are accused of entering the home of Jason Beyer. In the brutal home invasion, the suspects shot Beyer in the back when he tried to stop an attack on his wife. That shooting left Beyer paralyzed from the waist down.
Sixteen-year-old Shabar Marshall's case also came up Friday morning. The prosecutor indicated the younger brother would be tried on burglary charges separately from his older brother - possibly this summer.
In the other cases - the brothers could be tried together.
