(BEDFORD) - The murder trial of 24-year-old Brent Knapp will not happen. A change of plea hearing is scheduled for Monday at 9 a.m. in Lawrence County Superior Court II.

Knapp is charged with murder; reckless homicide, criminal recklessness resulting in serious bodily injury in the shooting death of his roommate 20-year-old Braden Wilson.

The shot that killed Wilson, according to a probable cause affidavit also hit Wilson's girlfriend Raichal Miller, of Mitchell.

An autopsy report found the bullet traveled through Wilson's fifth finger on his right hand, which was near his face, then entered his head through his right temple and then exited his left cheek and then entered Miller's arm.

Knapp told police he had been drinking and snorting adderal, before shooting Wilson in the morning hours of July 19, 2010. Knapp and Wilson shared a home in the 800 block of R Street.
