MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) - Attorneys have more time to decide whether to pursue the death penalty for a man suspected of fatally shooting three people and wounding another.

The Moscow-Pullman Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1PxNIXL) Judge John Stegner gave both sides until Dec. 1 to review the case and come to a decision.

Earlier this month, 29-year-old John Lee of Moscow pleaded not guilty to charges in the deaths of his adoptive mother, 61-year-old Terri Grzebielski; his landlord, 76-year-old David Trail; and an Arby’s manager, 47-year-old Belinda Niebuhr.

Police also say Lee injured Michael Chin of Seattle.

The request from Latah County prosecutors says the state and defense are reviewing a large volume of material and investigating further.

Lee is due in court Feb. 16. Jury selection in his trial is set for May 2.
