Jeremy Thornburg and Lajuana Long are both charged in the death of 20-year-old Candice Shields.
Attorneys say they're trying to hammer out a trial date, which should be set in the next couple weeks.
Authorities say they believe Thornburg shot Shields several times in December 2011 because she was seeing other men.
Long is accused of helping Thornburg destroy any evidence that could link him to the murder.
