The retrial for Michael Dunn, who is charged with first-degree murder in the killing of Jordan Davis, has been pushed back.
A judge delayed the start date originally set for May 5 after Dunn's new attorney, Waffa Hanania, requested more time to prepare for the case Tuesday. Hanania took over Dunn's case on March 10, according to WJXT.
A pretrial hearing is set for June 9, when a new trial date is expected to be set.
In February, Dunn was convicted of three counts of attempted second-degree murder after an argument over loud music outside of a convenience store. The first-degree murder count was declared a mistrial after a jury could not reach a decision on it.
