RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) -- Michael, Diane Grey, and family huddled outside the John Marshall courthouse Friday morning frustrated as their nightmare continues.

Their son, 23-year-old Josh Grey, was murdered on September 17, 2018, after a botched robbery of his iPhone off arranging the sale of his phone on the app “Letgo," an app that enables you to buy and sell items to people in your area.

Then in April, Demeco Pressey-Robertson, the man prosecutors called the mastermind behind the robbery and killing was acquitted of first-degree murder but found guilty of attempted robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery.

During Robertson’s trial, 15-year-old Tyshawn Andrews, the accused triggerman, testified on the behalf of the prosecution, saying Pressey-Robertson masterminded the killing and told him they would split the money.

Then Friday, sentencing was delayed for Robertson due to a clerical error.

"The sleepless nights. Waking up at 1:00 in the morning, 2:00 in the morning, 4:00 in the morning. Then to prepare for a day like today and to walk into the courtroom and to know that the reason we can't finalize this part of the case is because there was a clerical error?” asked Michael.

"Where is the accountability? Someone needs to be accountable. In this case, or in the clerk’s office, or the attorneys? Who is responsible? What repercussions… there are no repercussions. We have people standing here that flew in from Alabama."
