One of the youngest people ever to be charged with murder in Erie County, will now have more time to prepare for trial.

The lawyer of 15-year-old Keyon Lucas will now have until February to file any pretrial motions.

Lucas is heading to trial on several charges, including first-degree murder.

Lucas was just 14-years-old when police say he fired a gun into a vehicle full of people, killing 24-year-old Lavelle Beason.

It happened back on January 23 in the 500 block of East 22nd Street.

Investigators arrested him about 21 days later at a home in Detroit, Michigan, where he was found hiding in a crawl space, along with 25-year-old Grover Lyons.

Lyons is the suspect in another Erie murder.

As of now, no trial date has been set.
