SAN FERNANDO — The preliminary hearing of two men charged with murder in a Sand Canyon street racing death was delayed today over issues of evidence.

Colt Sean Doherty, 19, and Thomas Joseph Vensko, 20, both of Canyon Country, appeared in San Fernando Superior Court on Tuesday on suspicion of second-degree murder in the death of Dakota DeMott, 19, also of Canyon Country.

Last-minute evidence shared with defense lawyers by prosecutors Monday prompted San Fernando Superior Court Judge Harvey Giss to postpone the case for another two weeks.

Some of it involved new interpretations of the speed calculated by prosecution experts examining the cars involved in the crash.
