ROCKY RIVER, Ohio -- The marijuana possession case against Cleveland Indians closer Chris Perez and his wife could extend to the final month of the season.

The two were at Rocky River Municipal Court on Tuesday in suburban Cleveland and the case is to resume Sept. 3. According to The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer, attorneys discussed evidence sharing.

Perez and his wife, Melanie, pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor possession charges after marijuana was mailed to their home in their dog's name. Police say they were tipped off by postal inspectors to suspicious packages.
