Guam - A 26-year-old man accused of murdering his mother last year was in court today. During proceedings it was announced that Allan Agababa has retained the services of defense attorney Randy Cunliffe.  Agababa lived with his mother, Shelly Bernstein, in her apartment in Tamuning. She died from blunt force trauma to the head. 

Prosecutors allege that prior to his mom's murder Agababa made inquiries with her employer about her death benefits. He is scheduled to appear back in court for a pretrial conference on March 11 with trial to follow on March 19.

There have been indications that the defense may file a motion to dismiss the case but Cunliffe told the court today that his client is ready for trial.
