The two accused of murder and conspiracy in the fatal stabbing of transgender woman Maya Young will now have preliminary hearings in June.

After a March 23 status hearing, lawyers for the commonwealth and the defense set May 3 for a preliminary hearing for Tiffany Floyd, 24, and Jose Pena, 19. But updated court records indicate that the hearings will instead take place at 9 a.m. June 7 in room 306 of the Criminal Justice Center, 1301 Filbert St.

Floyd and Pena have been denied bail. She remains in custody in Riverside Correctional Facility, while he is in Curran-Fromhold Correctional Facility.

Police charged both in relation to the Feb. 20 killing of Young in Frankford. Around 11:50 p.m., police responded to reports of a stabbing near 4900 Griscom St. When officers arrived, they found Young suffering several stab wounds to the neck and chest. They transported her to Aria Health Frankford, where officials pronounced her dead.
