(AP) — A Texas judge has delayed the murder trial of a former police officer who is charged with fatally shooting a Black woman through a back window of her home in 2019.

Aaron Dean’s trial in the killing of 28-year-old Atatiana Jefferson in Fort Worth had been set for Jan. 10. Judge David Hagerman on Wednesday granted a defense motion to postpone the trial because two experts were unavailable to testify in January. Hagerman tentatively rescheduled the trial for May 9.

Pretrial motions, including a defense request to move the trial out of Tarrant County, are set for May 2.
