On Wednesday, defense attorneys argued that some witness identifications of defendants should be suppressed due to problems with photo packs and media coverage before some IDs were made.

A ruling was not made.

The next hearing in March will determine if the suspects will be tried separately. A hearing is set for April on possible death penalty charges.
