Dorian Johnson and Courtney McCoy, both 21, were in Washtenaw County Trial Court Judge David Swartz’s courtroom Thursday for a pretrial hearing. The pretrial hearing was adjourned for two weeks and they will return to court at 1:30 p.m. Dec. 13, according to court records.

Johnson and McCoy are accused of knocking on the man’s door after 3 a.m. Sept. 9 in the apartment complex in the 400 block of South First Street. McCoy was apparently upset about a disagreement that occurred a month earlier.

The couple allegedly got the man into the hallway and stabbed him in the abdomen. The man, who police described as severely wounded, staggered to the BP gas station, where police and medical personnel responded.
