KENAI, Alaska (AP) - A 39-year-old Soldotna man charged with sexually assaulting two women in 2013 has had his trial delayed again.

The Peninsula Clarion (https://bit.ly/1C9x8Ha) reports public defender Josh Cooley last week asked for a 60-day continuance in the trial of Shane Heiman.

Judge Charles Huguelet set Heiman’s trial for April 6.

Heiman has been jailed since Dec. 13, 2013.

Alaska State Troopers say Heiman that day shut off power to the cabin of a 23-year-old woman, broke into the home and tried to rape her. He was using a headlamp and carrying a knife.

The woman escaped to a nearby home.

Troopers also charged him with kidnapping and sexually assaulting an 18-year-old woman taken from her Soldotna apartment at knifepoint on Nov. 11, 2013, by a man with a headlamp.
