MEDIA, Pa. (AP) - Trial has been delayed for four Philadelphia residents charged in the shooting death of a drugstore manager in suburban Philadelphia last fall.

WCAU-TV (https://bit.ly/1dou3FT ) reports no new date has been scheduled for the Delaware County Court proceedings.

Authorities allege that Rita Pultro and David Wiggins tried to rob a Rite Aid in Chester on Sept. 19 but ended up shooting 40-year-old Jason McClay of Broomall before fleeing. The Navy veteran was pronounced dead at the scene. Pultro and Wiggins are charged with first-degree murder.

Prosecutors allege that store employee Tariq Mahmud provided information about security procedures and Christopher Parks was the getaway driver. They face second-degree murder charges.
