Phillip Lewis Murder Trial Likely in 2012

The trial for a Greenville man, accused of killing a former East Carolina University student last August, won't happen until next year--at the earliest.

Phillip Lewis, 21, is charged with the murder of Tommy Falcone, 22, in August 2010. Falcone's body was found at Pirate's Cove Apartments on East 10th St. in Greenville. Authorities say the fatal shooting followed a dispute between two groups of college-aged men.

During a court hearing Monday morning, Judge Clifton Everett set a discovery conference in the case for September 27th. That will be a private meeting between the defense, district attorney and police to go over evidence in the case. The judge also set January 16th as the next administrative court date for the case. He said during that hearing a trial date would be set.

Lewis, who is out on a $500,000 bond, appeared in court with his two attorneys.
