GULFPORT, Miss. — The trial of three South Alabama men accused in armed bank heists in South Mississippi has been delayed while federal prosecutors try to obtain a new indictment.

The Sun Herald reports ( ) the three men, from the Mobile area, are accused of driving stolen vehicles and switching vehicles to avoid arrest after robbing banks at gunpoint in Gautier and Biloxi in May and June 2008.

Randy Laverne Marshall, Keith Anthony Kiel and Reginald Martez Robinson are being held without bond. They were set for trial this month.

Court papers show one of the men's attorneys asked for a trial delay, noting he has been advised the government plans to file a superseding indictment -- a new indictment, which often brings more charges.
