PITTSFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A judge has postponed a hearing for two young Detroit men charged in the robbery and fatal shooting of an Eastern Michigan University football player.

Demarius Reed of Chicago was killed in Ypsilanti at his off-campus apartment building in October. Twenty-year-olds Kristopher Pratt and Ed Thomas are charged with open counts of murder.

A probable cause hearing was scheduled to continue Wednesday to decide whether there's enough hearing to send the men to trial.

The judge in Washtenaw County's Pittsfield Township set the hearing to continue next Monday.
