UPDATE: The judge has not yet made a ruling on any motions; the next hearing has been scheduled for May 19, 2014.

Virginia Beach, Va. - A man charged in the death of an off-duty Norfolk police officer is expected back in court.

Raymond Lewis Perry is accused of killing Officer Victor Decker.

Raymond Perry will be in court this morning.

He's charged with murdering off-duty Police Officer Victor Decker.

It all began back in October 2010 -- almost four years ago -- when police found Decker's body on the side of Oceana Boulevard near a go-go bar.

It was more than two years later -- when police arrested Perry -- who was the second man charged in the murder of the officer.

Perry was already serving more than 90 years in South Carolina for a string of robberies.

He faces a number of charges, including capital murder.

Just last month -- the Commonwealth dropped all charges in this case against another man, Kareem Turner, citing perjury.

As for Perry, we'll have a reporter in the courtroom this morning -- and will be sure to update you.
