The suspect in the brutal killing of a Pitt student last year attended a status conference at the Allegheny County Courthouse on Monday afternoon.
Jennifer Tomazic was at the courthouse to ask Darby questions -- watch 11 News starting at 5 p.m. for his answers.
Deputies walked Matthew Darby through the courthouse, giving Channel 11 the first up-close look at the man authorities say stabbed and beat 20-year-old Alina Sheykhet to death in her Oakland apartment in October. He did not answer questions from Channel 11.
Darby, Sheykhet’s ex-boyfriend, fled to South Carolina before being captured by police there.
The hearing confirmed Darby has an attorney and a trial date of July 30. District Attorney Stephen Zappala is seeking the death penalty for Darby.
