SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

There is another delay in the trial of Brandon Mackey.

Mackey is charged with killing Wesley Franklin in Sandfly in 2012.

Mackey appeared in court Monday and was granted a continuance after his defense announced they just received the results of a competency evaluation and need more time to review it.

Detectives said Mackey was trying to rob two women when the bar door opened and he pulled the trigger, hitting Franklin.

Wesley's father, Jim Franklin, said the wait drags out the the pain, but he hopes the justice will be worth it.

"It's very difficult. It's just prolonging our agony." Franklin said. "I can personally wait a little longer. I just want to make sure the justice that Brandon Mackey gets is what he deservers."
