The Philadelphia man who is charged in the murder of Nicki Minaj and Rihanna’s tour manager has had his court hearing postponed, Billboard reports.

On Wednesday (Apr. 15), a judge pushed the preliminary hearing back to Apr. 28th. On that date, the judge will determine if there is enough evidence to take this case to trial.
