BOONVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

The suspects accused of murdering Joseph Nelson in Warrick County were in court Thursday for initial hearings.

An initial plea of not guilty was entered for the defendants, but attorneys for Jade Stigall and David Lackey Jr filed motions for release of their clients citing a lack of probable cause.

Lackey's attorney, Mark Philips, argued that facts about the case that are being reported in the news are not in the probably cause affidavit.

He cites information about the victim's pin number.

The formal chargers read that Matt McCallister asked Nelson for his pin number when he got in the car at the Huck's gas station.

The information does not say anything about whether or not his accounts were accessed by any of the suspects.

Financial records have to be subpoenaed and that could take some time.

If there was a robbery involved, additional charges could be filed.

Prosecutor JoAnn Krantz asked that a trial date be set in both cases. The judge denied the request to give attorneys time to receive all of the records pertaining to the case.

A hearing on the release motion is set for March 11.
