TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Trial will go on as scheduled next week for quadruple murder suspect Henry Segura.

The state made a motion for the trial to be continued saying the defense wasn't ready for a speedy trial with new information and the number of motions made after the request. But the judge struck it down.

Henry Segura appeared in the courtroom this afternoon for his pre-trial hearing.

He's accused of killing his ex-girlfriend Brandi Peters, her two children, Tamiyah and Taniyah Peters, and their son Javante Segura in 2010. Jury selection begins Monday and could last two days.

There was also discussion in court about one of the witnesses in the trial and whether the defense improperly obtained her statement.

A hearing will be held about that during the trial.

The prosecution and defense didn't have comments after court Thursday. 

The trial could last three weeks. The state is seeking the death penalty.
