Judge grants extension of discovery in Tree of Life shooting case

(CNN) – Attorneys in the Tree of Life synagogue shooting case have been granted more time to prepare for trial.

The Pittsburgh-Post Gazette says during a hearing on Monday, a judge granted a 120-day extension of discovery.

That will allow both the prosecution and defense to share information.

Robert Bowers is accused of killing 11 people last year at the synagogue in Pittsburgh.

Prosecutors say the 46-year-old man used anti-semitic slurs and criticized a Jewish group on a social media site in the days before the shooting.

Bowers did not appear in court Monday but has previously pleaded not guilty to charges in the case.

The Anti-Defamation League says the Tree of Life shooting was the deadliest anti-semitic attack in U.S. history.
