Double murder suspect, Bodhi Tree's, lawyer said they are likely to make a motion to push the trial date back. In court Monday the judge was informed that Tree had a new lawyer, because his previous lawyer suffered from a heart attack. Tree's lawyer requested more time to review the case.

 

Tree plead not guilty in a previous hearing. He is the suspect in the death of two Arcata residents in May, and the alleged attempted murder of a man in Eureka a few days earlier.

 

Tree faces the death penalty or life in prison without the possibility of parole.

His jury trial was set to start in December.
