WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - The discovery of surveillance video that might hold clues in a June grocery store parking lot shooting in Waterloo has postponed the trial of the man charged in the case.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports (https://bit.ly/YLPqjv ) that 33-year-old Antonio Deshawn Hutchins will now face trial on Jan. 5. His first-degree murder trial had been slated to start this week.

After Hutchins’ defense team compiled the surveillance footage, prosecutors learned of video that hadn’t been gathered by police. On Monday, a judge granted Hutchins’ lawyers request for more time to go over the new video.

Hutchins is accused of fatally shooting 30-year-old Cederick Matlock and injuring another man on June 25 outside the grocery store. Hutchins’ lawyers say its video compilation will show he fired in self-defense.
