BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Accused hitman Michael Louding, also known as "Marlo Mike," was expected back in court Tuesday for another status hearing, but it was postponed to a later date.

Judge Mike Erwin rescheduled the hearing for Sept. 27.

Louding faces six life sentences for as many murders back in May of 2010. His first trial is set to begin later this month for the murder of Terry Boyd.

The Baton Rouge Police Department said the now 19-year-old confessed to six murders.

He was supposed to be the star witness for prosecutors in the murder trial of Baton Rouge rapper Lil Boosie, whose real name is Torence Hatch.

The East Baton Rouge District Attorney's Office said it had promised Louding less than life in prison if he gave truthful statements in court against other people connected to the murders.

District Attorney Hillar Moore said that deal is now off the table.

Prosecutors said Louding told investigators Hatch paid him to kill Boyd, but on the stand, he said he never told police he shot Terry Boyd.

Louding told the jury he was at Hatch's house the night of the murder. He said Hatch and Adrienne Pittman, the accused getaway driver, never left the house.
