MIAMI (AP) - A Kenyan man’s trial on U.S terrorism support charges has been delayed until late June to allow his lawyer more time to review large amounts of evidence in the case.

U.S. District Judge Ursula Ungaro postponed the start of 27-year-old Mohamed Said’s trial from May 4 until June 29.

Said has pleaded not guilty to eight charges of conspiracy and attempted terrorism material support to al-Qaida, the Syria-based Nusra Front and Africa’s al-Shabaab organization.

Said’s defense partly centers on whether prosecutors can prove he was the person using certain computers during online chats with an undercover FBI employee about financing terror groups and recruiting fighters.

Co-defendant Gufran Mohammed was sentenced to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty in July to a terrorism support conspiracy charge.
