BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Trial has been delayed three months for a man and woman accused of luring women from California to work as prostitutes in western North Dakota.

Trina Nguyen (wihn) and Loc Tran were to stand trial in federal court this week on charges related to human trafficking and coercion. Court documents show that U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland has rescheduled the trial to begin June 8 to give attorneys more time to prepare.

The trial in Bismarck is expected to last nine days.

State human trafficking charges against Nguyen and Tran were dismissed earlier when federal prosecutors took jurisdiction in the case.
