WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - A judge has rescheduled a trial hearing for a Waterloo man convicted in a homicide case.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports (https://bit.ly/1lIiZ13 ) that the trial for 24-year-old Perquondis “Mooter” Holmes was rescheduled Friday for a date in January.

Holmes says Facebook photos shown during his trial violated an earlier court ruling that references to gangs would be kept out of the trial.

Holmes’ attorney, Robert Montgomery, called County Attorney Brian Williams as its first witness. Williams resisted.

Montgomery said Williams was the prosecutor who introduced the photos and is alleging prosecutorial misconduct for doing so. Williams said he shouldn’t be called to the stand because he’s a party to the case and the allegations weren’t raised earlier.

Holmes was convicted in May for his involvement in the November 2013 death of 18-year-old DaeQuan Campbell.
