BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The young man accused of killing a Domino's Pizza delivery driver was in court on Monday.

The defense for Corey Arrington has filed about 20 motions in this case and were prepared to argue them Monday. However prosecutors requested more time to look them over and prepare.

Arrington is charged with capital murder in the death of Najeh Masaeid. Though Arrington was 17 at the time of the crime, authorities have said they will try him as an adult. Police say Masaeid was killed Dec. 21, 2014 while he was delivering an order to an apartment complex near the Summit shopping center.

Arrington's attorneys hoped to discuss a number of motions including cell phone records and examining the crime scene. They have also filed a motion asking for a jury questionnaire which would be allow both sides to learn of potential jurors' backgrounds that may be relevant to the case and also any relationships or experiences that may pose some bias.
