RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A hearing has been delayed for an aspiring rapper charged with killing his girlfriend and three others in Farmville.

Attorneys of Richard "Sam" McCroskey say they are awaiting results of a mental health evaluation.

McCroskey faces capital murder charges.

A hearing was expected in Prince Edward County circuit court later this month to set a trial date.

McCroskey's attorneys say it likely will be delayed until June.
