MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - A status hearing was set for Tuesday morning, April 23 in the murder case of Brandon Estle. That hearing, however, has been reset until May 7.
Estle is accused of beating Justin Hasty with a baseball bat, then shooting him after he was dead. Authorities said Hasty's body was found stuffed in a plastic container on property in Grand Bay, which belongs to Estle's parents.
FOX10 News caught up with Defense Attorney Jeff Deen right after the hearing.
Deen said the hearing was reset because he is waiting on the rest of the discovery from the Mobile County District Attorney's Office. Those with the D.A.'s office said they are waiting on reports from the state
"The state hasn't given us all of our discovery so we put it off for a couple of weeks to get more information in," Deen said.
In a status hearing, things in a case can be sometimes worked out. Deen said a lot of times they can't.
When asked about a possible plea deal for his client, Deen said, "Well we haven't gotten our discovery so we're open to anything but we're going to be ready to go to trial in June."
Estle remains held without bond in Mobile County Metro Jail.
Estle, who has pleaded not guilty, and his family were in the courtroom.
