The defense attorney for a Royal Oak man charged in the Oct. 12  shooting death of 50-year-old Theresa Diamos is still going through 300 pages of worth of documents on behalf of his client.

According to The Daily Tribune, this is the reason that attorney Steven Lynch asked for a delay in the preliminary hearing in the trial of 49-year-old David Douglas Davis.

Royal Oak 44th District Judge Derek Meinecke scheduled the preliminary hearing for Dec. 4 to give the defense more time to prepare.

According to the report, relatives of the victim were in the courtroom but declined giving comment. Davis had been living with Diamos in her home on Altadena, possibly since he was dinos02sidelogo3paroled in Nov. 2012.

Davis previously served six years in prison for assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder in Wayne County, and he was paroled about three years ago.  He also served two years in prison for a 2004 conviction for felony assault.
