STANARDSVILLE, Va. (AP) -- A Virginia judge has rejected a triple-murder suspect's request to dismiss his case.

Greene County Circuit Judge Daniel Bouton on Friday rejected the motion from attorneys for 28-year-old Taybronne Altereik White.

His attorneys had argued the Charlottesville man's rights were violated when a former Greene County sheriff's employee stole cash seized as evidence in the case.

White is accused in the May 2011 deaths of 26-year-old Brian Robert Daniels, 25-year-old Dustin Tyler Knighton and 26-year-old Lisa Hwang. Investigators believe the three were shot after a botched home invasion.

The Daily Progress reports ( that authorities have charged White with 11 felonies, including three counts of first-degree murder.

White is being held without bond at Central Virginia Regional Jail in Orange.

A two-week jury trial scheduled to begin Sept. 24.
