According to ABC13, Keefe D's new attorney, Carl "E.G." Arnold, asked to delay the trial so that he would have more time to go over the discovery. His new trial date has been moved to November 4 from its original June 3 date. Davis is accused of orchestrating the September 7, 1996, shooting that killed Shakur. He was arrested on September 29. According to police, he is the only suspect in the case who is still alive. The prosecution is not seeking a death penalty on Davis, per CNN. Arnold is confident in Keefe D's chances in court. "The state has to provide evidence of a gun, of a car, and, most importantly, whether Mr. Davis was even in Las Vegas at the time," Arnold said. According to Arnold, his client is "upbeat that he can possibly get out of here real soon." Keefe D's bail is set for $750,000 and he would have to pay 10% of it to make bail. If he's able to make bail, then he could serve house arrest until trial and will have to wear an ankle monitor."
