Isaak, in April 2019

A hearing set on defense motions to suppress evidence and change the venue in the case of a man accused of quadruple murder in Mandan last year has been delayed again, court documents show.

The hearing for Chad Isaak, 45, had been scheduled Tuesday but is now scheduled for May 4. He is charged with four counts of murder in the deaths of RJR Maintenance and Management co-owner Robert Fakler and employees Adam Fuehrer and Bill and Lois Cobb, who were married. The four were found shot and stabbed April 1, 2019, at the business off Memorial Highway in Mandan.

Isaak has pleaded not guilty. He has requested a change of venue for the trial because of news coverage about the case. He also has challenged the legality of police search warrants in the investigation. The hearing on his motions has been delayed several times.

The trial in the case is scheduled to start Nov. 30, court documents show.
