The man suspected of killing Cash App founder Bob Lee on the streets of San Francisco was set to appear in court Friday before his hearing was postponed at the last minute.
Nima Momeni was arrested at his home in the early hours of Thursday morning, and is facing murder charges for allegedly stabbing the tech mogul.
He was flashed a heart sign from a relative in the public gallery as he entered the courthouse, before his arraignment was dramatically postponed because one of the prosecutors fell ill.
He is now set to appear back in court on April 25th.
Momeni, 38, is the owner of Expand IT, a tech business in the Bay Area, and describes himself online as a start-up entrepreneur.

San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins has charges Momeni with murder, alongside a further charge of special enhancement for using a knife.
In a news conference Thursday, the DA’s office said they are seeking to hold Momeni without bail, arguing he represents a danger to the community.
Nima appeared at the courthouse Friday with a shaved head and wearing an orange jail issued sweatshirt, pants and sandals, but he was not shackled.
Several of his relatives were spotted sitting behind his defense table, with a gray haired woman seen putting her hands over her head in a heart shape as he arrived.
Bob Lee, 43, was stabbed in the street last week while visiting San Francisco from Miami, where he lived.
It is unclear if Momeni attended the same tech conference Lee was in town for, but the pair were seen in Momeni’s car together at around 2.30am, moments before the stabbing.
