WASHINGTON — Citing the need to review millions of pieces of evidence, former Bank of America executive Phillip Dennis Murphy, who was indicted in July 2012 for scheming to rig bids for municipal bond investment contracts, has waived his right to a speedy trial and requested a trial date of Feb. 3, 2014.

Lawyers for Murphy, who pleaded not guilty to wire fraud and conspiracy, need time to review 12 million documents and 560,000 audio files produced during the evidence discovery process, they said in documents filed Feb. 20 with the U.S. District Court for the Western District of North Carolina in Charlotte.
