LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

A recent change in attorneys means the trial for a man charged in a drive-by shooting last year won't happen until November.

The attorney was assigned to defend David Fontenot only two weeks ago. He said he has not had enough time to adequately prepare for the murder case.

Fontenot is charged with second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder after a drive by-shooting in April 2011 that killed Stephin Bergeron.

The new trial date is set for Nov. 13.
