PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A preliminary hearing for two men charged with a vicious, armed home invasion attack on Temple University students in their off-campus housing has been delayed until April 26th because of a defense request for a line-up. But there has been a bail motion for the same defendant.

The defense request to lower the $800,000 bail has been denied for 18-year-old defendant Malcolm Murray. Prosecutor Laurie Moore argued against lower bail for the safety of the alleged victims and the community at large.

“They are willing to go into someone’s home with guns and look at them and say, ‘give me all your stuff.’ It’s not just on the street where they come up to someone, it really is another step of a violation and of violence when all three pull out guns.”

The victims were duct taped and threatened with death. Neither Murray’s attorney, nor the attorney for a co-defendant, who did not seek lower bail, would comment on the case. Authorities are still looking for a third man allegedly involved in the crimes.
