BATON ROUGE - There are more delays in the trial of a man accused of a deadly workplace shooting in Baton Rouge.

Judge Tony Marabella was set to decide if Richard Matthews would be allowed to participate in his own defense, but Marabella wants to hear from the doctor that performed Matthews' sanity hearing..

That psychiatrist wasn't in court, so the hearing was delayed again.

Matthews is accused of killing two secretaries at the Grady Crawford Construction offices in 2009. The company fired Matthews a few months before the incident because of poor performance.

The district attorney's office plans to seek the death penalty if he's convicted of first degree murder..
