The trial is set for March 12, but the man prosecutors believe is the shooter in the case is still awaiting extradition from his native Jamaica.
“We’re waiting to see what the deal is,” the lead prosecutor in the case, Jude Conroy, said this week.
The trial had been scheduled for October of last year but was postponed until this month because of delays caused by the extradition proceedings.
Three of the men arrested in the robbery and murder case are in custody. The fourth man, Marlon Mullings, is the subject of the extradition negotiations involving Philadelphia investigators, the U.S. Justice Department and Jamaican authorities.
Prosecutors have indicated their preference for a trial of all four accused at one time.
Mullings was arrested by Jamaican police early last year.
Calls to the Jamaican embassy in Washington had not been returned by presstime.
