Hearing postponed in Yonkers baseball prospect killing case

A hearing for the suspects accused of killing Yonkers baseball prospect Michael Nolan will not be held until next week.



A judge in Westchester County Court adjourned the hearings for suspects until June 15.



In March, Nashaun Hunter, 17, of the Bronx, pleaded not guilty to charges of second-degree murder and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon. Darren Dawson, 18, and Tejmitra Singh, 23, both of the Bronx, and Garth O'Neil Cole, a 22-year-old from Mount Vernon, pleaded not guilty to first-degree assault and weapons charges.



Nolan was gunned down last October in the parking lot of a Burger King on Central Park Avenue in Yonkers. Investigators believe an argument about a drag race days before the murder sparked the violence. They say that Nolan may not have even been a part of that incident or the intended target.



The 23-year old was a graduate of Yonkers Saunders Trade and Technical High School and had been drafted by the Oakland A's.
