Arraignment delay in Chinese USC student killings

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Arraignment has been delayed for two men charged with murdering a pair of University of Southern California graduate students from China.

A Los Angeles court on Monday rescheduled the arraignment of 20-year-old Bryan Barnes and 19-year-old Javier Bolden to July 18.

The men are accused in the April 11 shootings of 23-year-old engineering students Ming Qu and Ying Wu, who were sitting in a car in an off-campus neighborhood. Prosecutors say the motive for the crime is believed to have been robbery.

Both defendants are also accused of attempted murder for a Dec. 3 shooting at a party, and an amended complaint filed last month accuses Bolden of attempted murder in a Feb. 12 party shooting. Prosecutors say an error led to Barnes initially being charged in the latter case.
