Stephen Carver, 50, a suspect being charged with murdering his brother with a dumbbell in early August, was in court on Thursday.
Carver waived his right to a preliminary hearing within 60 days. His attorney said she needs more time to review autopsy reports that discuss the manner and cause of his brother's death.
Carver allegedly murdered his 55-year-old brother, Gregory Carver, in his Churn Creek Road apartment.
He is scheduled to be back in court in November.
