WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - A judge is meeting with attorneys in the case of two Pennsylvania men charged in the 2013 death of a man killed in what authorities say was a murder-for-hire scheme.

Friday’s conference involves the pending trial of Ryan Shover of York, Pennsylvania, and Michael Kman of Enola, Pennsylvania. They are charged with first-degree murder, conspiracy, insurance fraud and a weapons offense in the death of 43-year-old Wayne Cappelli.

Authorities say Cappelli was last seen leaving a store where he worked in February 2013. His body was found two days later in a roadside ditch. Authorities say he was beaten with a softball bat.

Investigators say Cappelli had named another man charged in the case as the beneficiary of a $300,000 life insurance policy a few months before he was killed.
