OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A federal judge in Oklahoma City has agreed to delay the start of a trial for an Oklahoma man accused of sexually abusing children in Kenya.

Stephen Jones, a defense attorney for Matthew Durham, said Wednesday during a brief phone conversation with The Associated Press that the judge agreed to extend the trial’s start until June 9.

The start of the trial has been extended before, as attorneys had previously asked for more time to interview witnesses and prepare for a trial.

Prosecutors accuse Durham of sexually abusing children at the Upendo Children’s Home in Kenya, where he’d worked as a volunteer. Durham has denied the allegations.
