Two former bellhops charged with selling cocaine to David Kennedy, 28, before his drug death in April, 1984, in a West Palm Beach, Fla., hotel backed down from a plea bargain, choosing a jury trial to fight the accusations. “The decision was made that what we were going to do was not in the best interest of our clients,” said attorney Michael Salnick, who represents Peter Marchant, 25, of Warwick, R. I. Salnick said a December trial would be likely. Accused with Marchant was David Dorr, 31, of West Yarmouth, Mass.
