Trial date delayed in law grad slaying case

Posted: Updated:

MACON, Ga. (AP) - A trial date for the suspect in the slaying of Mercer University law school graduate Lauren Giddings has been delayed until January.

The Telegraph newspaper reports (http://bit.ly/KYnzY) that Stephen McDaniel was previously scheduled to go on trial in September, but now faces a Jan. 6 trial date.

Macon Judicial Circuit District Attorney David Cooke said the delay is necessary to ensure that the court has an adequate time to consider motions in the case.

McDaniel is charged with the June 2011 slaying and dismemberment of 27-year-old Giddings, who was from Laurel, Md. Her torso was found in a trash bin near her apartment and police have said the rest of her remains have not been found.

McDaniel has pleaded not guilty.
