The trial was rescheduled until Nov. 26 and will begin that morning with jury selection. It is scheduled for five days.
Franklin allegedly shot Julian Marquis Johnson, 23, outside the Elliott Drive bar during the early morning hours of May 30, 2017. Three others were also injured by gunfire, according to Middletown police.
Middletown police Detective Jon Rawlins testified during a previous hearing that Franklin confessed to killing Johnson.
Defense attorneys filed motions to suppress statements Franklin made to police without an attorney present and the traffic stop of his client after the shooting because they say there was no probable cause. After a hearing in February, that motion was denied by Pater.
Franklin remains housed in the Butler County Jail on $1 million bond.
