CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The suspect in the Cameo Night Club shooting will be back in court Monday for a pretrial hearing on charges that he tried to pay off and silence witnesses in his murder case.

That murder trial has since been delayed.

Cornell Beckley, 28, faces one count of tampering with evidence, one count of obstructing justice and four counts bribery, according to Hamilton County court documents filed last week.

The new accusations top off Beckley's 38 charges in the March 26, 2017 club shootout that hurt 15 people and killed O'Bryan Spikes, 27, and Deondre Davis, 29.

The indictment also alleges Justin Watson, 26, tried to use cash to influence witnesses in Beckley's murder trial.

He is charged with bribery and obstructing justice.

The witnesses were paid between January and April of this year, according to the indictment.
