VIRGINIA BEACH - A man accused of killing an off-duty Norfolk policeman will stand trial a year from now.

Raymond Perry is one of two men charged in the murder of Officer Victor Decker, who had been at a fundraising event at Atlantis gentlemen's club near Oceana. His body was found next to his truck in October 2010.

At a hearing Wednesday, Perrywas appointed a second attorney at a Wednesday hearing and waived his right to a speedy trial to make the February 25, 2014 date possible.

Perry is charged with capital murder, 1st degree, robbery and two counts of use of firearm. Va. Beach prosecutors said last month they'll pursue the death penalty in this case.

24-year-old Kareem Turner is charged with second degree murder and has a preliminary hearing set for March 14.
