MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A criminal court judge granted two suspects indicted for the murder of Young Dolph another week to find attorneys.

Justin Johnson and Cornelius Smith were in court for arraignment last week when they requested the judge give them a week to find representation in the case.

Both of them told the judge they would have them by their next appearance, Jan. 28.

During Friday’s hearing, the request was made again, with the judge setting a hard date to return to court on Feb. 4 at 9 a.m. or they will be appointed public defenders.

Johnson and Smith remain behind bars without bond.
