Trials for four suspects in a Meridian murder are being continued.
Marquez Gordon, Alexander Jenkins, Lamonte Marsh
and Rakeith Watson were slated for trial this week. However, District Attorney Bilbo Mitchell says their cases are being continued at the request of defense attorneys. All are charged in connection with the death of 45-year-old Thomas Tedeschi. Last August, the North Carolina native was found dead along Highway 45. Armed robbery is thought to have been the motive. At this time there's no official word on when the suspects will go to trial.
