POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) - A judge has accepted a request from defense attorneys for more time to prepare to defend an eastern Idaho man charged with the 2004 stabbing death of a 25-year-old woman in her home.

The Idaho State Journal reports (https://bit.ly/13kfMff) that a preliminary hearing set for Wednesday for 39-year-old Brad Scott Compher has been rescheduled for April 6 in 6th District Court.

Compher, also known as Ralph Roy Compher, is charged with first-degree murder.

He was arrested Sept. 10 after police said DNA evidence and a fingerprint linked him to the killing of Nori Jones. Her body was discovered Sept. 28, 2004, in her home by co-workers when she didn’t report for work.

Defense attorneys say they need more time to meet with expert witnesses and review DNA analysis.
