Pretrial set for man in medical student's slaying

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP & WZZM) - A pretrial hearing has been scheduled for one of two men charged in the shooting death of a 25-year-old University of Michigan medical student.

The Ann Arbor News reports that Shaquille Jones' case was pushed back to Feb. 19 when a plea in Paul DeWolf's slaying wasn't made Tuesday as expected.

DeWolf was found dead July 24, 2013, at an off-campus medical fraternity. A video game system was taken and later sold for $80.

The 21-year-old Jones and 20-year-old Joei Jordan were arrested in November in their native South Carolina and charged with murder and home invasion.

They told police that the fraternity house was one of two homes they broke into July 23 and that an accomplice accidently shot DeWolf.  DeWolf was a native of Schoolcraft in southwestern Michigan and a graduate of Grand Valley State University. Hundreds of people turned out for his funeral.

Jordan's trial is scheduled May 19.
