Bargo's Trial Delayed
Four of out of five people have now been convicted in the killing of 15-year-old Seath Jackson.
But it may be a while before prosecutors begin to make their case against the 19-year-old man they are calling the ringleader and have charged with first degree murder.
Bargo's attorneys didn't receive copies of what the judge called "standard paperwork" from the State and asked for time to review them.
"I don't believe, and I don't think either Supreme Court agrees that it's cookie-cutter justice, " Bargo's attorney, Charles Holloman told TV20.
Bargo's co-defendants, Charlie Ely and Justin Soto are now convicted, serving life sentences.
And three weeks ago, Amber Wright and her brother, Kyle Hooper were found guilty of murdering 15-year-old Seath Jackson in April, 2011.
Prosecutors argued they knew Jackson would be killed once he entered Ely's Summerfield home.
Throughout the trial the teens told detectives it was Michael Bargo who wanted Seath dead.
Holloman was not surprised.
"Michael is the last person to be tried in this case, why wouldn't everybody point at him?," Holloman asked.
The Supreme Court recently ruled that a mandatory life sentence for anyone under 18 violates the Eighth Amendment.
For Wright and Hooper, the judge now has to review their background before imposing a life sentence.
But Bargo was 19 when the crime was committed and the State wants the death penalty.
Holloman said it may October before Bargo's trial begins.
Wright and Hooper's step father, James Havens is charged as an accessory in the murder.
He has yet to stand trial.
