The Las Vegas man charged with fatally stabbing another man to death on June 17 was slated to go on trial Tuesday, but that has been delayed.
Jude Lucero, 40, is facing a single count of second-degree murder. If convicted, he faces up to 15 years in prison.
The defense had asked District Judge Abigail Aragon for a delay in the trial. Aragon, who is presiding over the case, said during a Nov. 24 docket call hearing said she wasn’t inclined to grant a continuance. But now it appears the trial won’t take place until January.
