LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A federal judge is scheduled to hold a final pre-trial hearing for two men charged with murder for hire and racketeering in Louisville.

U.S. District Judge John G. Heyburn II is scheduled to meet at 1 p.m. Friday with attorneys for Ricky Lewis Kelly and Dion Dajuan Neal. The two men have pleaded not guilty to taking part in a conspiracy to kill Lajuante “B.B.” Jackson in 2005 as part of an effort to protect a drug trafficking organization.

The men were indicted in 2011.

Heyburn has set the trial for both men to begin Sept. 8 and last two to three weeks in federal court in Louisville.
