ENTERPRISE, Ala (WDHN) — The trial for two brothers accused of killing a fourth-grade teacher in a murder-for-hire plot has been continued until mid-spring.

According to court records, Darin Starr, who is charged with Racketeering-Murder, requested more time to prepare for his and his brother’s trial, which is expected to last around two weeks.

According to an indictment, in 2017 Darin Starr was paid by his brother, Jason Starr, who is also charged with Racketeering-Murder, with a 2016 Triumph motorcycle and an undisclosed amount of money to kill Jason’s wife, Sara Starr.

Sara Starr was a fourth-grade teacher in Enterprise and was found dead in her driveway from a gunshot wound in late November 2017.

Police say Darin Starr was arrested in February 2022 in Hondo, Texas on a federal arrest warrant. He was then transferred to federal authorities in Alabama.

The documents say due to the size of the case and discovery, additional time is needed to investigate, review discovery files, and prepare for their trial.

A federal judge granted his request on December 15, 2022, and set the trial for April 2023.
