Two men charged in two separate murders both had their trials pushed back over two months.

14-year-old D’Angelo Honorable and 20-year-old Antonio Walters will now have their trials on Aug. 7. Their trials had been set for May 15, but attorneys requested the dates be pushed back, according to the Elkhart Truth.

Honorable is accused of shooting Teketa Hixson in her Park Ave. home on Nov. 30, 2016. Police say he fired four shots into her home while he stood outside the home. He was charged as an adult at the end of January.

Walters is accused of shooting 18-year-old Devonte Patrick to death on Dec. 23, 2013. The shooting happened during a marijuana sale gone bad in a church parking lot. Walters was on the run for nearly three years until he was caught in Minneapolis in Sept. 2016, then extradited in February to Elkhart County.

Another man involved in the Patrick shooting was 22-year-old Thomas Harper. He’s now serving a 60-year prison sentence after pleading guilty in Dec. 2015.
