QUINCY -- The case of a Quincy man charged in the 2015 shooting death of another Quincy man has been continued two weeks.

Steven E. Gavin was in Adams County Circuit Court on Wednesday, where his attorney, Public Defender Chris Pratt, said he still hasn't received a report from a cellphone expert in the case.

Pratt also told Judge Robert Adrian that Gavin expressed concern about a potential conflict of interest. Pratt said he didn't believe he had a conflict of interest in the case but would look into it.

Gavin, 55, is charged with four counts of first-degree murder and armed robbery in the Nov. 23, 2015, shooting death of Carlous Wires. He is accused of shooting Wires over a disagreement about a drug purchase.

Gavin has pleaded not guilty in the case. He will be back in court Sept. 12. The case was set for the August jury trial docket but was removed in July.

Gavin has been held in the Adams County Jail on $5 million bond since his May 1, 2017, arrest.
