NASHVILLE, Ind. (AP) - A murder trial for a man accused of killing an Indiana University student has been postponed until June.

The (Bloomington) Herald Times (https://bit.ly/1RTM5ad ) reports that the attorney representing Daniel Messel said she wouldn’t be ready for trial in February based on the amount of evidence and the number of depositions in the case. The prosecutor didn’t object to delaying the trial, but he relayed a request that the trial not be held in April, the month in which 22-year-old Hannah Wilson was born.

A Brown County judge granted the request to delay the trial during a court hearing Wednesday afternoon.

Wilson’s beaten body was found lying in an abandoned lot in Brown County in April. Police found Messel’s cellphone near her feet.

The trial will begin June 1 and is expected to last three weeks.
