NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. (AP) — Prosecutors say it could be late May before a Florida Department of Law Enforcement lab can analyze all of the evidence in the death penalty case of Adam Matos, the Hudson man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend and three others before authorities found him with his 4-year-old son in a Tampa hotel.

Judge William Webb didn't set a trial date during a hearing Thursday.

The Tampa Tribune ( reports that Matos, who faces four counts of first-degree murder, pleaded not guilty. The state plans to seek the death penalty.

He is accused of killing his ex-girlfriend, Megan Brown, her father, Gregory Brown, her mother, Margaret Brown and her boyfriend, Nicholas Leonard.

Prosecutors say there could be some 300 witnesses interviewed before trial.
