CAMDENTON (AP) - Problems with evidence management prompted a judge to announce a four-month delay in the trial of a man charged with killing three people in central Missouri.
The trial of Morris McCabe was halted Tuesday in Camden County after questions were raised about DNA evidence.
McCabe is charged with three counts of first-degree murder in the December 2010 deaths of Donald Young, Donald Myers and Sally Amos at Myers' home near Stoutland.
Circuit Court Judge Ken Hayden recessed the trial until June 17. The Lake Sun Leader reports the delay came after questions arose about the state's DNA evidence. The delay will allow a St. Louis laboratory to verify the evidence.
