NEW BRUNSWICK -

(AP) - A former Rutgers University football player accused of plotting a murder will remain jailed for at least a few more days.

Izaia Bullock was due to learn Friday whether he would be freed while awaiting trial or remain in custody. But a judge granted his lawyer's request for an adjournment so he could have more time to review evidence and related materials

The hearing is now scheduled for Wednesday.

Middlesex County prosecutors have charged the 22-year-old Piscataway man with two counts each of attempted murder and conspiracy, as well as a single count of cyber harassment.

Prosecutors say Bullock was plotting to murder family members of an acquaintance. The junior linebacker from Linden has been dismissed from the team and the university is initiating disciplinary proceedings.
