Two men appeared again in court in connection with the stabbing death of a Berks County man in the Bahamas.

Tyler Valles and Robert Schwarz were supposed to be served with a voluntary bill of indictment in connection with the death of Carl Yerger, of Ruscombmanor Township, but the document wasn't ready Monday, officials said.

The case has been adjourned until June.

Valles and Schwarz are charged with manslaughter. Their lawyer said the men acted in self-defense because Yerger trespassed on their boat. They remain free on bail.

Yerger was president of the Oley Valley Youth League.
